Wet/Dry Oxide - B2

MRL Industries Furnace for oxidation of silicon substrates

Manager: Phil Infante
Backup: Aaron Windsor , Daniel McCollister


The Thermal Oxidation Furnace is an atmospheric furnace with a 40” flat zone capable of processing up to 6” diameter wafers. The furnace tube is equipped with an external torch for pyrogenic wet oxidation, high and low O2 flow controllers for dry oxidation and O2/inert mixtures, as well as N2 and Ar anneal ambient. Samples are restricted to silicon based materials only.


  • Wet and dry oxidation
  • HCL during oxidation up to a 4% level
  • Low flow O2 processes
  • Anneals in N2 or Ar ambient
  • Pieces to 6” diameter wafers can be processed
  • Maximum temperature of 1200°C on select processes
