PSD, PSDP and Thermal Series UV Ozone Cleaner:
For UV Cleaning, UV Oxidizing, UV Sterilizing and UV Heat Treatment

Introduction: PSD, PSDP and Thermal Series UV Ozone Cleaner

Novascan's Ultraviolet UV Ozone Cleaners are highly published and widely used in industry, production and academics labs to UV clean semiconductor wafers, UV clean LCD surfaces during manufacturing, remove and strip photoresist, improve surface wettability, UV clean AFM probes / tips, UV Clean SEM & TEM samples, UV polymer activation, assembly / bonding of PDMS / glass microfluidic devices, UV clean glass and a host of other UV Ozone cleaning and oxidation applications. (Please below for a list of typical applications.)

Novascan UV Ozone Cleaners have proven to be highly effective for non-acidic, dry, non-destructive removal of organic contaminants using intense 185 nm and 254 nm ultraviolet light. In the presence of oxygen, the 185 line produces Ozone and while the 254 line excites organic molecules on the surface. This combination drives the rapid destruction and decimation of organic contaminants.

To further enhance treatment, the PSDP-UVT UVOzone cleaners utilize UVOzone and a thermal stage to achieve more aggressive results by elevating the energy state of the sample surface and by driving off water layers that can block oxidation. 

As shown below, AFM was used to document the removal of thick organic contaminants with exposure time using simple room air as an oxygen source (pure oxygen gas may be used for more controlled and aggresive treatment). Additionally contact angle experiments demonstrate dramatic improvements in surface wettability after UVOzone treatment.
