Products for semiconductor processing / handling

Morgan is at the forefront in the development of materials and components for the demanding environments of semiconductor wafer processing. Our products are installed in fabrication plants all over the world, helping semiconductor manufacturers optimise their processes, maximize yield, and reduce their total cost of ownership

Our materials offer excellent corrosion resistance and mechanical strength, exceptional electrical insulation combined with an excellent surface finish. These properties are essential for end-effectors designed to handle 300 and 450mm wafers. Due to the mechanical strength of our materials, we are able to offer a better strength to thickness ratio than the parts they replace

Corrosive chemical processes used in semiconductor wafer production demands materials with excellent corrosion resistance.

Our alumina deposition chambers and isolating rings can be manufactured with OD in excess of 510mm. Yttria coatings as well as textured alumina can be applied with a proprietary technique that gives full covalent bonding and not just the mechanical bonding associated with plasma coatings.

Graphite and ceramic are essential materials for tools used in the process chambers that process silicon wafers, processes that are being constantly pushed to improve chip performance.

Speciality graphite and carbon products

We offer a range of high-specification, high-purity graphite and carbon products that allow semiconductor manufacturers to operate at higher temperatures with improved efficiency, including; ultra-high purity and standard porous rods, carbon and graphite felts, rigid boards, powders and machined graphite furnace components. Our products are also widely used in the LED manufacturing process.

Diamond like carbon coatings

Our Diamond-like carbon (DLC), and other nanocomposite coatings provide significant performance enhancement for electrostatic chucks where they are used as a sacrificial wear-layer to protect the underlying electronics, extending the life of these parts.

CVD SiC and PBN products

Morgan are specialist manufacturers of chemical vapour deposition (CVD) Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Pyrolytic Boron Nitride (PBN) products used in the production of semiconductor materials.

Silicon carbide

CVD SiC is an ultra-pure, non-porous ceramic material and it has been used in semiconductor applications such as Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP), Plasma Etch, and Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) process. Our proprietary SiC surface treatment process has proven to minimise particle release in plasma chamber. We also have a patent on a near-net shape forming process for SiC rings, which enables us to produce SiC rings in high volume.

Morgan produces two grades of CVD SiC, High Resistivity (HR) grade (>10 Ω-cm) and
Engineered Low Resistivity (ELR) grade (< 0.1 Ω-cm).

Features

PBN crucibles and plates

CVD PBN is a high purity, non-porous ceramic material with anisotropic thermal properties that make it an ideal choice for high temperature applications. It is non-toxic, non-wetting and inert to nearly all chemicals.

Our high quality PBN crucibles have proven to improve the process performance for
crystal growth, whether the growth method is Liquid Encapsulated Czochralski (LEC),
Vertical Gradient Freeze (VGF), or Bridgman.

Our high quality PBN plates are an excellent choice for heating arrays for MOCVD reactors and as electrical insulators for CIGS sources.
