|20150247251||METHODS FOR ELECTROCHEMICAL DEPOSITION OF MULTI-COMPONENT SOLDER USING CATION PERMEABLE BARRIER - Processes and systems for electrochemical deposition of a multi-component solder by processing a microfeature workpiece with a first processing fluid and an anode are described. Microfeature workpieces are electrolytically processed using a first processing fluid, an anode, a second processing fluid, and a cation permeable barrier layer. The cation permeable barrier layer separates the first processing fluid from the second processing fluid while allowing certain cationic species to transfer between the two fluids.||09-03-2015|
|20150247231||LAYERED THIN FILM HEATER AND METHOD OF FABRICATION - A method of forming thin film heater traces on a wafer chuck includes positioning a pattern, that forms openings corresponding to a desired layout of the heater traces, in proximity to the wafer chuck. The method includes sputtering a material toward the pattern and the wafer chuck such that a portion of the material passes through the openings and adheres to the wafer chuck to form the heater traces. A method of forming thin film heater traces on a wafer chuck includes sputtering a blanket layer of a material onto the wafer chuck, and patterning a photoresist layer utilizing photolithography. The photoresist layer covers the blanket layer in an intended layout of the heater traces, exposing the blanket layer in areas that are not part of the intended layout. The method removes the areas that are not part of the intended layout by etching, and removes the photoresist layer.||09-03-2015|
