  • Patent number: 11651987
    Abstract: A substrate support pedestal comprises an electrostatic chuck, a cooling base, a gas flow passage, a porous plug, and a sealing member. The electrostatic chuck comprises body having a cavity. The cooling base is coupled to the electrostatic chuck via a bond layer. The gas flow passage is formed between a top surface of the electrostatic chuck and a bottom surface of the cooling base. The gas flow passage further comprises the cavity. The porous plug is positioned within the cavity to control the flow of gas through the gas flow passage. The sealing member is positioned in a groove formed in the cooling base and configured to form a seal between the cooling base and one or both of the porous plug and the body of the electrostatic chuck.

  • Patent number: 10867829
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to an electrostatic chuck for processing substrates. The electrostatic chuck includes a facilities plate and an insulator disposed between a cooling base and a ground plate. A support body is coupled to the cooling base for supporting a substrate thereon. A ring is configured to surround the insulator. The ring is formed from a material that is resistant to degradation from exposure to a manufacturing process. The ring optionally includes an extension configured to surround the facilities plate.

  • Patent number: 8510061
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media for wireless crack detection and monitoring are disclosed. According to one system, a crack detector is affixed to a surface of a material for detecting a crack in the material. In response to detecting a crack, a crack indicator is generated, indicating the existence of the crack. A mote wirelessly communicates the crack indicator to an external device. The mote may also store multiple crack indicators in local memory before being downloaded to the external device. In other embodiments, the mote may time-stamp the crack indicator for indicating a time when the crack was detected. Additionally, the mote may associate other information with the crack indicator such as temperature and acceleration information.

  • Patent number: 8316867
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for cleaning electrostatic chucks in processing chambers are provided. The process comprises flowing a backside gas comprising a reactive agent into a zone in a process chamber, the zone defined by a space between a surface of an electrostatic chuck or of a cleaning station and a surface of a substrate. The surface of the electrostatic chuck is etched with the reactive agent to remove debris. An apparatus for cleaning an electrostatic chuck is also provided, the apparatus comprising: a process chamber; an elongate arm having a reach disposed through a wall of the process chamber; an electrostatic chuck attached to the elongate arm; a cleaning station located within the reach of the elongate arm; and a reactive gas source that is operatively connected to the cleaning station.
