With (removable) electrostatic shielding ICP ceramic: alumina The system must be able to operate without mechanical changes in the RIE mode and the ICP mode.
THE MAIN APPLICATIONS ARE TO PROTECT PARTS USING ELECTROSTATIC SHIELDING AND ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE.
The erroneous readings may be due to either DC or AC electrostatic fields, so electrostatic shielding will help minimize the effects of these fields.
