Ma’s paper, Sn3.2Ag0.7Cu5.5Sb Solder Alloy with High Reliability Performance up to 175°C, reviewed the testing results of her efforts to achieve high-reliability under a wide range of high-temperatures using the lead-free solder alloy also known as Indalloy®276. Her paper found that in order to achieve this, it is imperative to balance a solder alloy’s ability to handle tensile stress versus its rigidity.

Ma joined Indium Corporation in 2010 and is based in Suzhou, China. She is responsible for developing halogen-free, lead-free, and no-clean flux chemistries with low-voiding. Ma earned her bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Qufu Normal University and her master’s degree in Physical Chemistry from Nanjing University.
