Luxtron Corporation and Applied Energy Technologies
Announce the EPS300LX Electrostatic Chuck Power Supply,
Featuring Fully Integrated Fluoroptic® Thermometry

July 17, 2002 -- Luxtron Corporation, a leading supplier of in-situ
temperature measurement instruments and Applied Energy
Technologies, Inc., a leading manufacturer of electrostatic chuck
power supplies, introduce the EPS300LX electrostatic chuck power
supply. The EPS300LX integrates a Luxtron m600 Fluoroptic®
Thermometer, the latest advancement in LUXTRON's patented
Fluoroptic technology and Applied Energy Technologies, Inc.
patent-pending MultiMode ESC electrostatic chuck power
supply technology into a single compact instrument.
Applied Energy Technologies Delivers Electrostatic Chucks
for High-Rate MEMS Etching.
June 28, 2002 -- Applied Energy Technologies, Inc. delivered the
first electrostatic chucks (ESCs) for a new high etch rate MEMS
semiconductor process tool to Aspect Systems. Through a joint
development effort, the new ESCs provide greater clamping force,
lower leak rates, higher thermal conductivity and improved uniformity.
These ESCs allow the Aspect Systems Crystal UDT etcher to achieve
high MEMS etch rates with excellent thermal management.
