Corrosion Resistance

Edited by Hong Shih, ISBN 978-953-51-0467-4, 482 pages, Publisher: InTech, Chapters published March 30, 2012 under CC BY 3.0 license
DOI: 10.5772/1844

The book has covered the state-of-the-art technologies, development, and research progress of corrosion studies in a wide range of research and application fields. The authors have contributed their chapters on corrosion characterization and corrosion resistance. The applications of corrosion resistance materials will also bring great values to reader's work at different fields. In addition to traditional corrosion study, the book also contains chapters dealing with energy, fuel cell, daily life materials, corrosion study in green materials, and in semiconductor industry.

Dr Shih

Dr. Hong Shih, Senior Technology Director at Lam Research Corporation, Fremont, California, received his Ph.D. in Metallurgy under Professor H. W. Pickering from Department of Materials Sciences & Engineering, the Pennsylvania State University in 1986. He was a Post Doctor under Professor F. B. Mansfeld from 1986 to 1988 and served as Research Professor from 1988 to 1990 at University of Southern California. He holds B.S. in Chemistry from Beijing University in 1970 and M.S. in Electrochemistry from Academic Sinica, Electric Power in 1981. Dr. Shih has been working at Applied Materials (1994-2002) and at Lam Research Corporation (2002-), respectively. He has 120 publications in the referred journals and books, 160 technical consulting reports, national and international presentations, 200 semiconductor equipment specifications and best known methods (BKMs), 1,300 technical reports, and 190 United States and International Patents granted or published. His pioneer work in the study of materials under high density plasma opened a new scientific and engineering field. Dr. Shih is a well-known scientist on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), corrosion monitoring and control, and electrochemical techniques. He is a well-known export in plasma resistance materials, anodized aluminum, surface coatings, precision wet cleaning, defect, particle, and metal contamination reduction on plasma etching equipment served in semiconductor wafer fabrication.
