ZEISS Enters the Software Sector with Analysis Solution; ZEISS has developed and released the new software solution ZEISS AutoAnalysis. The application software analyses aerial images, taken by the ZEISS photomask qualification tool AIMS(TM). It runs fully automated and provides immediate, standardized results.;
January 29, 2015
ZEISS has released the new application software ZEISS AutoAnalysis. The software solution provides fully automated analysis of ZEISS AIMS aerial images in parallel to the measurements as they are being captured. Manual interaction is no longer required, thus eliminating human error, but manual analysis is still available if desired. Analysis results are automatically entered into customized report layouts. ZEISS AutoAnalysis communicates directly with the ZEISS AIMS tools. ZEISS AutoAnalysis has been in use at one customer site for several months. Two more installations will follow in February.

CyberOptics Announces New ReticleSense Airborne Particle Sensor Quartz; Quartz Housing Designed to be Compatible with ASML, Nikon and Canon Scanners in Semiconductor Fabs
January 29, 2015
SEMICON Korea -- CyberOptics® Corporation (NASDAQ:CYBE), a leading global developer and manufacturer of high precision 3D sensing technology solutions, will announce its new addition to the ReticleSense® wireless measurement portfolio at SEMICON Korea in Booth #1857 at COEX, from Feb. 4 - 6, 2015. The new ReticleSense Airborne Particle Sensor Quartz (APSRQ) has a quartz housing for use in semiconductor tools that handle quartz reticles. The technology inside is the same CyberOptics particle sensor technology widely used by equipment OEMs and fabs worldwide that improves yields and tool uptime. Designed and developed specifically for use with scanners in the semiconductor fabs, the ReticleSense APSRQ has all of the necessary alignment marks and bar codes for compatibility with ASML, Nikon and Canon scanners. The APSRQ can be loaded directly into a scanner just like a quartz reticle and travel the entire reticle path to detect in real-time when and where particles occur.

IMPROVING SIGNAL AMPLIFICATION IN SEMICONDUCTORS AND OTHER OPTOELECTRONIC DEVICES
January 27, 2015
LA JOLLA, Calif., Jan. 27 -- The University of California at San Diego issued the following press release: According to the American Institute of Physics (AIP), a new signal amplification process developed by researchers at the University of California, San Diego is "now poised to fuel new generations of electrical and photonic devices - transforming communications, imaging, and computing." The researchers in UC San Diego's Jacobs School of Engineering, led by electrical and computer engineering professor Yuhwa Lo, have discovered a mechanism to amplify signals in optoelectronic systems that is far more efficient than the process long used by the semiconductor industry based on impact ionization.
