Can material weight loss be measured? (Low pressure plasma)

Yes, based on the homogeneity test the etching rate can be determined by the weight loss.

Yes, based on the homogeneity test the etching rate can be determined by the weight loss.

For this purpose, slides are glued with PE tape and weighed before and after the plasma treatment. The difference can then provide information about the etching rate.

Weighing must take place on an analytical balance, as the weight loss is very low.
