Title (EN) REDUCED VOLUME PROCESSING CHAMBER
(FR) CHAMBRE DE TRAITEMENT À VOLUME RÉDUIT
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments described herein generally relate to a processing chamber having a reduced volume for performing supercritical drying processes or other phase transition processes. The chamber includes a substrate support moveably disposed on a first track and a door moveably disposed on a second track. The substrate support and door may be configured to move independently of one another and the chamber may be configured to minimize vertical movement of the substrate within the chamber.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent de manière générale une chambre de traitement ayant un volume réduit pour effectuer des processus de séchage supercritique ou d'autres processus de transition de phase. La chambre comprend un support de substrat disposé mobile sur une première piste et une porte disposée mobile sur une deuxième piste. Le support de substrat et la porte peuvent être configurés pour se déplacer indépendamment l'un de l'autre, et la chambre peut être configurée pour réduire au minimum le mouvement vertical du substrat à l'intérieur de la chambre.
