ExSolve can prepare site-specific TEM lamella, sampling many sites per wafer in a fully-automated process inside the fab, giving semiconductor manufacturers much more information than conventional approaches, while at the same time reducing the capital cost of sample preparation by up to 70 percent.
We expect ExSolve to transform the way process engineers think about process data.
The ExSolve WTP system is an automated, high-throughput sample preparation system that can prepare site-specific, 20nm thick lamellae on whole wafers up to 300mm in diameter.
During these eruptions, the energy released is a result of rapid crystallization in the chamber, which exsolves water and other volatiles, and it is high enough to drive a major explosive eruption.
MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]), the vapour phase exsolves as a supercritical fluid having a low density (large volume) and causing pressure to build up within the magma chamber.
Carbon dioxide behaves in a similar fashion to water as it exsolves from a melt, but it is volumetrically less significant than water because it has a higher density as temperature increases.
Because of their sizes and compositions, the magmas of porphyry copper and molybdenum deposits rise to shallow levels in the crust and exsolve magmatic fluids at temperatures and pressures (depths) that reach the two-phase (liquid+vapor) field of the [H.
