Aggregate state The aggregate states of matter are the solid – liquid – gaseous states. The plasma state has completely different properties than the gaseous state and is often described as the fourth
Amino acid Amino acid is the key element of all proteins. The organic molecule is coded by three DNA base pairs. Amino acids can be used in plasma treatments. arbeiten.
Tensile test In the tensile test, one tries to deform the test material until it breaks in order to determine the tensile strength and other material properties of the material. The specimens are clam
Deep drawing In deep drawing, a film or plate is radially drawn into a forming die which is open on one side. Deep drawing can be done by means of active energy, dies, or active media. To prepare surf
Etching Teflon Dry-etching of PTFE (Teflon) by means of plasma treatment . Teflon (not hydrophilic but hydrophobic and oleophobic) etching is used to change/modify the Teflon surface, e.g. to make it
TOF-SIMS Acronym for Time of Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry, surface analysis method in which the surface is bombarded with a pulsed ion beam. From the time-of-flight of the ejected secondary
Sputter etcher System which uses dry etching based on the sputter effect (physical etching, resp. breaking off of atoms from the solid body surface by means of ion bombardment) for successive removal
Particle accelerator Charged particles can be heavily accelerated in a particle accelerator by means of electric fields. In this way, high velocities can be reached.
gauge. The working range is between 10 and 10 -3 mbar. Frequently used in plasma systems . Diener electronic uses Pirani sensors for pressure measurement
Specimen holder Product carriers for mounting, or mechanical clamp required for holding the components to be treated. In its simplest form, this will be a support plate.
