The three stack Tystar 8” furnace is used primarily for 3 processes. The processes are dedicated for one tube each:

  1. SOG curing - Tube 1
  2. Dry or wet oxidation of silicon - Tubes 2 and 3
  3. General furnace annealing - Tube 3

Each process tube can accomodate up to one hundred 8” wafers per cycle. We have boats for 2", 3", 4", 6", 8" and irregular shaped pieces. The maximum temperature is 1050°C for the system. Gases used are O2, Steam from DI-H2O, N2.

Process Information

Use the BYU Thermal Oxidation Calculator to determine the time and temperature that will be necessary for your process needs. Keep in mind that all process must be 30 minutes in length at a minimum. Processes less than 30 minutes will suffer from poor uniformity because the process tube will not have sufficient time to saturate with O2 or .


Tube 1 - SOG425.001

Tube 2 - WET1050.002, DRY1050.002, WETVAR.002, DRYVAR.002

Tube 3 - WET1050.003, DRY1050.003, WETVAR.003, DRYVAR.003, ANNEAL.003
