Feb 10, 2020

The full spectrum of patterning topics will be discussed at the upcoming SPIE Advanced Lithography symposium. Held at the San Jose Convention Center on February 23-27, 2020, the event features seven technical conferences covering the full spectrum of topics of interest to the micro- and nanolithography community. These include state-of-the-art tools, advanced unit processes and process integration, and novel patterning approaches.

Lam is proud to once again be the sponsor of the Advanced Etch Technology for Nanopatterning conference, as well as the exhibition bag sponsor. If you are at the show, be sure to visit Coventor in booth #323.

You can hear about some of the latest advances in patterning solutions from Lam and our collaborators at the following presentations:
