Application: CFD Analysis of a Commercial Plasma Reactor
Posted Fri June 22, 2001 @09:29AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application CFD Canda and CFDRC, in conjunction with KyungWon Tech of Korea, have simulated [pdf file] two commercial high-density plasma reactors of the type used in integrated circuit wafer production. The study concentrated on flow and temperature distribution in the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process.
In recent years considerable amount of research was devoted to plasma and electromagnetic modeling of process chambers, however thermal aspects were often omitted by assuming constant chamber temperatures. Variation in temperature distribution leads to variation in precursor and intermediate concentrations, which in turn changes surface adsorbtion and surface reaction rates.

Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent has released a major new version of their airflow modeling software Airpak.

Designed for HVAC, Health & Safety, and Environmental engineers, the latest version of Airpak has several enhancements including better CAD integration, a macro function for building simple models of diffusors, a detailed solar loading model, an animation capability, and several speed enhancements.

"The demand for airflow modeling to be done upfront in the design process for ventilation systems is heating up," says Airpak Product Manager Walter Schwarz, "and more and more firms are selecting Airpak as their tool of choice. The features that we've added with this new release are our response to the continuous market demands for faster model building, faster solutions, and easier ways to produce effective pictures, plots and animations from simulation results."
