Plasma treatment removes contaminants from a fiber surface, for instance, desizing cotton. Cleaning and plasma etching technology are broadly used in semiconductor and integrated circuit manufacturing. Plasma is the fourth state of matter (the other three are gas, liquid and solid), which is electrically charged and contains free electrons, positively charged ions, and free radicals (compounds or atoms with unsatisfied chemical bonds).

While there is no net charge within the plasma as a whole, the charged particles within the plasma can and are affected by external electromagnetic fields. Electronic engineers and physicists have devised ways to manipulate these electromagnetic fields to make beams of charged particles that to the integrated circuit engineer are similar to nano-milling machines. The plasmas from which these beams are created are chemically active and highly energetic, thus highly erosive/corrosive.

Plasma etching is also known as reactive ion etching, RIE (Reactive-ion etching), which shows how corrosive the plasma can be. Earlier, the plasma chamber was lined with monolithic ceramic components. However, today, as silicon wafer sizes have significantly increased, chamber sizes have also increased and are now coated with dense, high-quality ceramic coatings like yttria or alumina. Generally, the wafer-fixturing materials are also ceramics.

Germany plans to spend around EUR 50 billion to secure its position as a significant semiconductor production location. The country has announced major investment plans for the domestic production of semiconductors. Germany is investing prominently in its microelectronics sector to make the nation an international semiconductor production force.
