The seminar included topics such as Material Characterization by Scanning Electron Microscopy, Material Analysis by Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy, Heavy Metal Analysis by Zeeman AAS, Separation of Liquid Components by HPLC, Thermal Analysis with Real Time Observation (DSC), and Surface Imaging by Atomic Force Microscopy. Our esteemed guest speakers who are experts in their fields shared their knowledge and experience, discussing emerging trends, and showcasing innovative methodologies for Advanced Analytical Techniques for Research and Industrial Applications.

Following the successful launch, Sigmatech held its second Breaking Boundaries seminar the day after, June 16, 2023 at Westgrove Heights Social Hall, Silang, Cavite, with the theme “Solving Quality Issues in Semiconductor and Electronics Industry using Failure Analysis Techniques”. The session covered topics such as Selected Area Decap and Semi-Automated Polishing Technique Cross Section and Flat Milling Technique by Ion Milling, Scanning Acoustic Microscopy, Photon and Thermal Emission Microscopy and IR-OBIRCh Technique, ROHS Screening by X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy by Cold Field Emission Technology, Material Analysis by Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy, and Metal Alloy Analysis by Electron Backscatter Diffraction. The seminar was attended by professionals working in the field of Semiconductor and Electronics, Pharmaceutical, Food and Beverage, Mining, Research and Academe, and more. The seminar was attended by professionals working in the field of Semiconductor and Electronics, Pharmaceutical, Food and Beverage, Mining, Research and Academe, and more. Attendees had the opportunity to gain insights on the latest advancements, engage in discussions, and explore potential applications of advanced materials characterization techniques.

Adding to the series of enriching seminars, the third Breaking Boundaries seminar was held on August 25, 2023 at Acacia Hotel Manila, Alabang. This seminar was titled "The Role of Amino Acid Analyzer for Sustainable Improvement," spotlighting the pivotal role of advanced analytical techniques in fostering sustainable practices across various industries. The session focused on the applications and methodologies of the Amino Acid Analyzer, High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), and UV-Vis/NIR Spectrophotometry. The Amino Acid Analyzer, a cornerstone technology for this seminar, is instrumental in analyzing protein composition and quantification, critical for research in nutrition, pharmacology, and biotechnology. HPLC, renowned for its precision in separating, identifying, and quantifying components in mixtures, plays a crucial role in pharmaceuticals, environmental analysis, and food science. UV-Vis/NIR Spectrophotometry, offering versatile applications from chemical analysis to quality control, allows for the absorption measurement of liquids, solids, and gases, highlighting its importance in labs across disciplines. Industry professionals attending this seminar gained invaluable insights into how these technologies contribute to sustainable improvement.

Building upon its series of insightful seminars, Sigmatech partnered with Oxford Instruments and NASAT Labs to host the innovative seminar titled "Exploring the Microstructures of Materials and Semiconductor Interconnects using Oxford Windowless Detector on Hitachi UHR Cold FESEM" on February 29, 2024 at NASAT Labs, Muntinlupa. This event, aimed at professionals in the fields of materials science and semiconductor research, focused on the latest advancements in electron microscopy and analytical techniques. The seminar spanned an introduction to Ultra-High Resolution Cold Field Emission SEM, in-depth discussions on EDX Theory & Applications, the unique applications of the Windowless EDX, and EBSD and its applications, culminating in a live demonstration. This event spotlighted the cutting-edge technologies developed by Hitachi High Tech and Oxford Instruments, emphasizing their roles in enhancing material and semiconductor analysis. Attendees gained valuable insights into the microstructural analysis of materials, highlighting the seminar's role in fostering innovation and technological advancement in the scientific community.

The Breaking Boundaries Technical Seminar Series provides a platform for researchers, scientists, engineers, and professionals to exchange ideas, explore other scientific opportunities, and encourage collaboration. Stay tuned for the future dates of Breaking Boundaries!
