Dry Processing Research Laboratory


Dry Processing Research Lab is one of several research laboratories in Microelectronics and Nanotechnology - Shamsuddin - Research Centre (MiNT-SRC), Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia. The lab is supported by cutting edge facilities environment at MiNT-SRC centre. This will enable Dry Processing Research Lab to conduct multidisciplinary research fields of micro- and nano-electronics. 

Our research focuses on functional thin film deposition using plasma processing technology, which is also known as dry processing. In order to optimize the deposition parameters, it is essential to understand the plasma during the deposition. Therefore, our team also investigate the plasma properties such as plasma density and temperature using Langmuir probe analysis and optical emission spectroscopy.

The Dry Processing Research Lab is among the first universities research lab in Malaysia that have a magnetron sputtering plasma machine with dual-target which enable us to deposit multilayer and compound thin films. This machine has been the core of our research collaboration with other universities and private companies.

We also have Reactive Ion Etching system using capacitively coupled plasma configuration.

KEYWORDS: plasma processing, plasma diagnostics, magnetron sputtering plasma, atmospheric pressure plasma, capacitively coupled plasma, dielectric barrier discharge plasma
