In situ distributed property monitoring combined with data mining and predictive modeling for dynamic processes optimization and preventive control
Manufacturing Efficiencies: Our technology has the potential to make a significant impact on the new generation advanced thin film product manufacturing. By reducing process tuning time, eliminating product rejects and improving product performance AccuStrata’s solution reduces product cost, making the manufacturing processes cost effective and leading to the waste-free product manufacturing needed for the 21st century economy.
It can be stated that the predictive modeling and dynamic process control is the technology of the future.
Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS): A new development in this industry, in situ AAS promises to resolve most of the existing process control problems and become a viable candidate for the gradual replacement of traditional process control methods used today. By monitoring and controlling the element concentration in the vicinity of the product surface AAS allows control of the individual components that form the thin film. This unique technique is able to control extremely thin films (thickness < 10 angstrom), extremely thick multilayer coatings (thickness > 50 microns), compound semiconductors and metal alloys, patterned thin films and complex structured nanolayers.
Biotechnology: Our real-time broadband UV-VIS-NIR monitoring and predictive modeling know-how are applied in adaptive control and process optimization in bioreactors, monitoring for environmental contamination of ballast waters, and identification of hazards in the food supply chain needed for creating advanced awareness system.
