Metal Powders May Hold Promise for Lead Free Solder, Adhesive

Abstract:
It's not a particularly large area of research, at least not yet. But there are several R&D institutions, industry groups and startups in the industry looking at how nanomaterials can help bring about the lead-free packaging era, such as the Georgia Institute of Technology, the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) or NanoDynamics Inc., a Buffalo, N.Y.-based startup.

The potential use of nanomaterials in lead-free packaging is not really much different from their applications in other fields, noted Lubab Sheet, senior director of nanotechnology at Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI). It is a matter of controlling the materials at a molecular and atomic level to achieve intended results.
