Just wondering....

Occasional thin film substrates for microwave hybrids. We're slowly getting out of substrates. Looking for a decent vendor. Actually, we more typically use microinches. No particular reason.

I do. Mostly done in thin film deposition and sputtering processes.

I do. I work in the semiconductor business, and was a thin films/sputtering process engineer. For those wondering, 1 angstrom = 1/10th of a nanometer, or 1E-10 meters. Pretty small, really [:)]

I do. My tolerance for Liberal-PC-Racial/Gender-Diversity- Multicultural-AntiAmerican -Socialist BullSh!t is about 0.003A

I think LordTrader does... when he is trying to figure out if those damn pills he bought really work. [}:D]

I do, every Friday on my damn Physical Chemistry quizzes, cause my professor hates nanometers. Kharn

Depends on how far you travel! As for angstroms I do, job related. Who here measures in stones (no kidding)?

You people and your weird measurements... My car gets fourty rods to the hogshead and that's the way I like it.

Forty rods to the hogshead? You must be firkin kidding!

The job I had before this one, we used to measure metal coatings in Angstroms all the time. Ǻ

Mathematically speaking any length can be measured in angstroms. You can also measure a molecule and give the answer in AU's (astro. units) if it suits your purpose. All depends on how it needs to be visualized and what the application is.

I do occasionally, more often in microns or nanometers, though. Angstroms for layer thicknesses, microns or nanometers for width and distance measurements. I do IC failure analysis. I spend plenty of days looking through a microscope of one type or another.

I used to do sputtering and silicon and germanium epitaxy, but most of that stuff was outsourced a few years ago. I moved into IC design to remain gainfully employed. I sorta miss working with deadly 100KW RF generators and the most toxic chemicals known to mankind...
