Sela Division of Camtek was Chosen as one of the Top-10 Nanotechnology Companies in Israel
(Nanowerk News) Camtek Ltd. announced that SELA - Semiconductor Engineering Laboratories Ltd. ("SELA"), whose share capital was fully acquired by Camtek in November 2009, was chosen as one of the top 10 nanotechnology companies in Israel by the NanoIsrael 2010 Committee.
SELA is engaged in the development, manufacturing and marketing of automated SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) and TEM (Transmission Electron Microscope) sample preparation equipment, primarily for the semiconductor industry.
SELA's Xact system is the first TEM/STEM sample preparation system using Adaptive Ion Milling (AIM) technology. The AIM technology brings numerous advantages to traditional FIB (Focused Ion Beam) technology by reducing the sample thickness to below 20nm over a large area with high precision and throughput, as well as superior image quality. SELA has the ability to enable material analysis on the atomic scale and image structures and material interfaces in a controlled and unique manner otherwise unattainable.
Roy Porat, Camtek's Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The recognition of Sela as a leading participant in the nano-material and nanotechnology market is due to Sela's technological leadership in this space. We are proud of our newly acquired company. This recognition of Sela together with its proven commercial viability is an additional vindication of our acquisition."
