Agilent Semiconductor eSymposium



Webinar Date/Time: Tue, Jan 24, 2023 11:00 AM EST

As the semiconductor industry evolves and components continue to shrink, control of contaminants and impurities is increasingly critical. This symposium will explore ways to improve quantification of inorganic and organic impurities in liquids and gases.

Event Overview:

This symposium will focus on trends in the semiconductor and high-purity chemical markets. Explore ways to improve quantification of inorganic and organic impurities in liquids and gases at both the lab bench and via online monitoring.
Learn about a wide range of remote process monitoring solutions from Elemental Scientific for organic and inorganic contamination as well as from IAS to learn about metallic impurities in semiconductor gases.
Additionally, a discussion about the need for PFAS monitoring including a brief introduction to LCMSMS will be included.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Application-specific insights into getting the best possible detection limits
  • Advanced techniques for multielement nanoparticle analysis
  • Tools for remote monitoring of organic and inorganic/nanoparticle contamination
  • Quantitation of metallic impurities in gases

Who Should Attend:

  • Metals analysis lab managers, chemists, and technicians involved in trace metals testing
  • Lab managers and lab technicians looking to optimize heavy metals analysis of lithium-ion batteries
  • Lab directors and commercial lab managers looking to improve their battery testing
  • Quality and process engineers

Katsu Kawabata

Katsu Kawabata worked for Air Liquide from 1976 to 1989 in the Air Liquide R&D center France for analysis of impurities in gases. One subject of his work included the analysis of metallic impurities in gases using ICP-MS.He then moved to Yokogawa Electric (currently Agilent Technologies) in1989 and worked as an application chemist and R&D engineer. During the development work on HP4500, he developed the ShieldTorch technique for the cool plasma ICP-MS.

In May 2000, he moved to PerkinElmer in Canada and worked until November 2004. After returning to Japan, he established IAS Inc. in 2004 and has been working there as president. He developed the automated standard addition system (ASAS), the fully automated VPD-ICP-MS (Expert), the fully automated online chemical monitoring system (CSI).
