    Ultraviolet laser photolysis of chlorine (λ=350–360 nm) has been used to produce a microscopic atomic chlorine source. Crystalline silicon has been etched and deep through-wafer vias have been fabricated. The etching process has been modeled as a combination of diffusion from the Cl...

    During the Arctic winter of 2000/01, groundbased FTIR and millimetre-wave measurements revealed significant amounts of ClO over Kiruna after the final warming in February 2001. In fact, column amounts of ClO were still increased in March 2001 when temperatures were about 20K above the PSC (Polar...
