“Space wafers” made on parabolic flights

January 28, 2016 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It seems the best way to produce next-generation “space wafers” is to not actually fly to space. ACME Advanced Materials — an Albuquerque startup that planned to use suborbital flights to produce high-quality semiconductor wafers in microgravity — has opted instead to create its own microgravity environment with parabolic

October 13, 2014 ACME Advanced Materials Inc. is moving the semiconductor manufacturing industry into space. The Albuquerque startup, which launched last year, has created a breakthrough process to turn low-grade semiconductor wafers into top-performing material for power electronics by tapping the dead stillness of microgravity. The elimination of all gravitational pressure and interference allows the

ACME Advanced Materials Produces Commercial SiC Wafers in Microgravity

September 10, 2014 ALBUQUERQUE, NM (ACME PR) – ACME Advanced Materials, Inc. today announced the successful commercialization of its process to produce large quantities of low loss, electrically defect free (EDF) Silicon Carbide (SiC) wafers in a microgravity environment. This development creates a new grade of SiC wafer, S Grade, that are electrically defect free
