12 Aug 2020

בכנס הסיכום של המאגד הישראלי לפיתוח טכנולוגיות תשתיתיות בתחום המטרולוגיה (MDM – Multi-Dimensional Metrology) של ייצור שבבים שהתקיים לפני כשבועיים, התברר ששיתופי הפעולה בין החברות הישראליות והאקדמיה הולידו פיתוחים חדשניים ברמה עולמית, באחד מתחומי הטכנולוגיה הקשים והמאתגרים בתעשיית ייצור שבבים.
במישור הטכנולוגי הציג המאגד הצלחה יוצאת דופן: בשנה השלישית בוצעו 13 פרויקטים שהניבו 16 מאמרים אקדמיים ו-5 פטנטים הנמצאים בשלבים שונים של תהליכי רישום. ד”ר משולח: "פותח בין היתר גלאי השדה המגנטי הקטן והטוב ביותר מסוגו בעולם לשיפור ביצועי מיקרוסקופ אלקטרונים סורק, פותחה שיטה שהודגמה על מיקרוסקופ מסוג  Atomic Force Microscope – AFM המהיר מסוגו בעולם, פותחו אלגוריתמים מסוג חדש של לימוד מכונה וטכנולוגיות חדשניות נוספות. מספר פרויקטים ושיתופי פעולה ימשיכו גם לאחר סיום פעולת המאגד".

Multi-Dimensional Metrology (MDM) Consortium Y3 Conference 

28 July 2020

The MDM Consortium is a MAGNET program under the aegis of the Israel Innovation Authority and is completing its third and final year of activity. 

This is an opportunity for all MDM members – Industry and Academia – to meet and present their research, developments and accomplishments made over the course of three years of research and collaboration. The MDM Conference is also an opportunity to hear from researchers and metrology professionals first-hand, concepts and approaches for metrology, addressing some of the emerging challenges of the semiconductor industry. 

The MDM Conference will be a full day event, including guest speakers and breakout sessions to provide an opportunity for technical discussions with the researchers. This year, due to the Corona virus, we will present our accomplishments via video conferencing.
