Hermetically Sealed Semi-Conductors

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

Sensitive technology like these are tested within environmental test chambers to provide users with the safest most reliable products.  Accelerated life testing is used on elements and coatings to determine how well they will holdup in their desired settings. Researchers are searching for tiny components that function reliably in increasingly narrow electronic configurations. Promising elements include the chemical compounds indium selenide and gallium selenide. As ultra-thin layers, they form two-dimensional semi-conductors. So far, they have hardly been used because they degrade when they get in contact with air.
