Clean rooms are highly regulated, enclosed spaced, design to keep out as many particulates as possible. These rooms are intended to minimize contaminants by controlling many variables that range from temperature and humidity to air pressure and vibrations.
Because the intention of clean rooms is to prevent contamination, our technicians are required to wear specialized equipment. This prevents any outside impurities from finding their way onto the products on clothing or accessories.
Semiconductors do their job at a microscopic scale, allowing us to place an enormous number of transistors in a very small area. A single silicon wafer, for example, can sustain billions of transistors. These transistors are minuscule and operate at a scale so small that even the tiniest particulate can throw off the entire process.
Something as small as a speck of dust can harm the function of an integrated circuit. For that reason, keeping the semiconductor as clean as possible is an essential step in the manufacturing process.
InP wafers are classified as III-V semiconductors, which are used in many high-performance optoelectronic applications due to their high electron mobility, direct bandgap, and low exciting binding energy. InP semiconductors are particularly effective in enhancing the range at which lasers emit light. This means they are commonly used in fiberoptics for telecom and datacom applications.
