How can you spell semiconductors without “F”(luorine)?

PFAS is prevalent in our world and very much in our current conversation. But what is it? (or more correctly, what are they?), why are they under great scrutiny? are they all hazardous? and how would the semiconductor industry be impacted by their removal? Click here and find out.
