Brewer Science expands analytical and application testing services
Brewer Science, Inc. (Rolla, Missouri), a global leader in developing and manufacturing next-generation materials and processes for the microelectronics and optoelectronics industries, has recently expanded its analytical and application testing services to include stand-alone chemical, polymer, trace impurity, on-wafer & thin film characterisation testing services to customers – services the company has perfected through its processes for nearly four decades.
Material purity within the industry is being pushed to unprecedented levels for many reasons, including extending the life of the products and ensuring the functionality of products within a wide range of applications. Brewer Science invests in metrology to better create customised solutions and better understand its supply chain. Its standards of materials testing and tracking are claimed to be unmatched in the industry.
Concerns over additive tolerances and mixing pure materials with suppliers’ products that may not be as pure requires careful attention to statistical analysis, to measure what level of purity a material can handle before it loses its characteristics. An impurity can be required for certain reactions, thus understanding the material, and balancing that knowledge with the models and research of polymer chemists, is critical. The company can not only measure the purity of materials but report on the impurities with a parts-per-trillion detection capability.
Over 40 years of experience in chemical analysis and semiconductor application testing has allowed Brewer Science to apply this expertise to not becoming a world-class manufacturer, but also apply the knowledge of defect detection to supply chain partners to elevate material purity standards.
Brewer Science offers a complete line of analytical and application testing services, specialising in semiconductor and other high-technology products, through materials characterisation and contaminant reduction that it now offer to customers worldwide.
