Notes

Some of the Si samples were HF etched.

Compares impurities with and without point-of-use gas purifiers

Used Sairem SURF451 surfatron plasma source.

Plasma source limitations require it to be kept on during the entire run with slow power ramping between high and low powers.

Portion of the reactor was replaced by polycarbonate to be compatible with the plasma source.
