OmniCure Application Note: Adhesion Reduction of Semiconductor Dicing Tape
Many semiconductor wafer processing techniques involve the fixing of a thin layer of dicing tape to a wafer during the final stages of processing. To allow removal of
the die from the tape, the adhesion properties of the tape may be reduced with exposure to high-intensity UV light.
Because of their high reliability, long lifetime, reduced maintenance and lower overall cost of operation, UV LED systems are ideal solutions for removal of dicing
tape. OmniCure AC Series UV LED systems are offered in a wide range of sizes and configurations, with customized front-end optics to accommodate various manufacturing
needs and offer ozone-free production of high-intensity, low temperature UV light for increased yields with lower cost of operation.

OmniCure Application Note: UV Curing of Fiber Optic Coating
Current optical fiber manufacturing processes use high-intensity UV arc lamp or UV microwave excited arc lamp systems for curing coatings which protect
and strengthen the glass fiber. These UV lamps suffer from disadvantages such as low efficiency in producing UV light, high maintenance costs, limited lifetime
and environmental concerns. UV LED systems provide a compelling alternative or a complement to current UV arc lamp-based curing systems because of their high
efficiency, long lifetime, and low cost of operation compared to UV arc lamp systems. OmniCure® AC Series UV LED systems provide the further advantage of
customized front-end optics which produce a high irradiance, highly focused beam (line) of light from the LED to optimize the efficiency of the curing by
maximizing the UV energy onto the very thin strand of fiber.

OmniCure Application Note - Optoelectronics - Assembly of TOSA/ROSA Modules
Optical Modules are electronic components that
simultaneously convert an electrical signal to an optical signal or an
optical signal into an electrical signal. A transmitter is a device that
includes a source (LED or laser diode) and driving electronics. It
functions as an electrical-to-optical converter. A receiver is a
terminal device that includes a detector (photodiode) and signal
processing electronics. It functions as an optical-toelectrical
converter. A transceiver is a device that performs, within one chassis,
both transmitting and receiving functions.

OmniCure Application Note - Optoelectronics - Thin Film Filter WDM Module
This application note provides a brief overview of the
assembly process for Thin Film Filters (TFF), a specific design
technology commonly used in WDM components, and highlights the important
role of UV curing. WDM component manufacturers can benefit from using
UV curable adhesives along with the OmniCure S2000 UV Spot Curing
System and High Power Fiber Light Guides to make the assembly of WDM
modules easier and more repeatable.

UV Curing Applications
UV LED curing systems improve print quality with less heat impact to the substrate and lower operating costs through extended life
and less maintenance compared to other curing technologies. Environmental benefits are low energy consumption, and no mercury
content or ozone emission.
Manufacturing of electronic and optoelectronics components will benefit from UV curing systems that provide highest precision
control and repeatability to achieve the throughput and yields necessary in high volume automated processes.
General Assembly and Coatings
OmniCure® UV curing solutions can be used when bonding a variety of plastics, stainless steel, glass, rubber and similar or
dissimilar substrates; we specialize in sealing, coating and repair applications.
An important bonding and assembly technique for medical
device manufacturers is the use of UV curing adhesives due to their rapid processing, cure on demand nature, ease of automation, lower
energy requirements and solvent free bonding.
