Stability Tests for Electronic Applications

sep 11 2018

The stability of suspensions used for the electronic field is critical for guaranteeing the level of quality associated with high-technology end-products. For example, ultra-high definition displays rely on unique optical coatings and surface engineering of thin film structures to generate images of high-quality. Chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP) uses slurries to polish the surfaces of semiconducting materials. The functionalities of fuel cells and batteries are improved with solution-processed nanoparticle coatings. There are myriad examples of the use of suspensions in established and cutting-edge electronic applications. Stability tests of suspensions can ensure that electronic devices in commercial and industrial spaces are fit for requirement.

Particle Size Analysis through Static Multiple Light Scattering

jul 19 2018

Particle size analysis is critical for characterizing the physiochemical properties of heterogenous solutions such as emulsions. It is important to not only measure the size of dispersed media (solid particles, droplets, nanobubbles) but also monitor their evolution. Thus, the measurement is best to be done in the native form, without dilution or mechanical stress to determine the accurate stability and ageing properties.

What are the effects of dispersion stability breakdowns?

jul 19 2018

A dispersion is considered as homogeneous if its dispersion state is the same throughout the whole volume. The stability of dispersions refers to their long-term integrity and ability to remain in the state they were initially formulated. By remaining as close as possible to its initial physical state, a formulation is ensured to satisfy end-use properties it was initially created for. Because complex formulations are unstable by nature, apparent dispersion stability can only be evaluated by the time that the dispersed phase remains suspended.
