Veeco Instruments ships 50th Microetch(R) system to Seagate; Received record orders in 1994 Q4.PLAINVIEW, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 6, 1995--Veeco Instruments Inc. has announced the shipment of its 50th Microetch(R) Ion Beam Noun 1. ion beam - a beam of ions moving in the same direction at the same speed
particle beam - a collimated flow of particles (atoms or electrons or molecules) Etching System to Seagate for the production of advanced thin film magnetic heads (TFMH), used primarily in computer hard disk drives.
Microetch(R) Ion Beam Etching Systems are increasingly used as a production tool in the fabrication fabrication (fab´rikā´shn),
n the construction or making of a restoration. of high density mass memory storage devices.
In the fourth quarter of 1994, Veeco received a record 17 orders for its Microetch(R) systems from diverse customers such as Quantum, Applied Magnetics, Seagate, Thomson CSF Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Analysis Definition
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis is a laboratory test to examine a sample of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. and Fraunhofer Institute. The Microetch ion beam etching systems will be used in a wide range of microelectronic applications, including mass memory storage, high frequency telecommunications devices, optical components and microfabrication (sensors).
According to according to
1. As stated or indicated by; on the authority of: according to historians.
2. In keeping with: according to instructions.
3. the company Chairman, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. and President Edward Braun, "Veeco's microetch equipment uses advanced ion beam technology that creates perfect submicron patterns on even the most difficult to etch semiconductor materials Semiconductor materials are insulators at absolute zero temperature that conduct electricity in a limited way at room temperature (see also Semiconductor). The defining property of a semiconductor material is that it can be doped with impurities that alter its electronic properties , under low pressure and low temperatures." Such wafers are critical components in the latest microelectronic products such as computer disk drives, cellular telephones and automotive sensors.
