100% Testing and Inspection
To ensure maximum lifetime in your process and stable and accurate rate control, each crystal is examined for:
Resistance- Resistance is checked to assure measurement stability and longer coating life. Resistance is an indicator of electrical contact and electrode adhesion.
Frequency- Starting frequency within a small specification range is verified to ensure accurate thickness measurement.
Curvature- An electrical test for curvature is performed to assure resonance stability. Poor curvature results in measurement stability degrading more rapidly.
Visual Conformity- Each crystal is inspected for electrode uniformity, surface flaws, and other imperfections that are indicators of poor electrode adhesion and contamination.
