Lithography (from Greek λίθος - lithos, 'stone' + γράφειν - graphein, 'to write') is a method for printing using a stone or a metal plate with a completely smooth surface. Invented in 1796 by Bavarian author Alois Senefelder as a low-cost method of publishing theatrical works, lithography can be used to print text or artwork onto paper or another suitable material. (

The hotspot detection has received much attention in the recent years due to a substantial mismatch between lithography wavelength and semiconductor technology feature size. This mismatch causes diffraction when transferring the layout from design onto a silicon wafer. As a result, open or short circuits (i.e. lithography hotspots) are more likely to be produced. Additionally, increasing numbers of semiconductors devices ...

At advanced process nodes, lithography weak-points can act as major factors of yield losses in manufactured integrated circuits, especially under aggressive design rules. Thus, it is desirable to consider potential lithography weak- point issues during the phase of designing standard cells in order to improve manufacturability of integrated circuits. In this paper, we propose a partial pattern matching methodology, which ...

  • How Lithography Enables Moore's Law

    Moore's Law sets the pace for the electronics industry, delivering increasing computing capabilities at stable cost. This was driven by the steady pace of the increase of components in an integrated circuit (IC), which has to a large extent been enabled by optical lithography printing increasingly smaller electronic features on a silicon wafer. This chapter quantifies what the contribution of lithography to Moore's Law has been in the past and then discusses the future lithography options to extend Moore's Law into the future. Optical lithography has always been the workhorse for IC manufacturing. The next step for optical lithography is extreme ultraviolet (EUV), which will greatly simplify patterning and thus promises faster yield ramp and lower cost. The alternative patterning techniques, Directed self¿¿¿assembly (DSA) still needs optical lithography to guide the patterns and should thus be seen as a complementary technology.

  • Semiconductor Manufacturing

    In this chapter, we describe the fundamentals of semiconductor manufacturing, popularly known as ?>chip manufacturing?>. Starting with the use of larger single crystal silicon wafers and defect density reduction techniques necessary for manufacturing chips with lower cost, the principles of lithography and etching are presented. The basic sequence in integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing is transistor formation (front-end processing), interconnect formation (back-end processing), and assembly and test. Advancements in lithography, single-wafer processing and advanced process control have played key roles in manufacturing semiconductor products with critical dimension (CD) as small as about 20 nm today. Process variability is one of the key challenges that the industry faces as CDs are scaled to roughly the 10 nm regime. Fundamental research on new materials, their interfaces, new processes and new devices is certainly required if we are ever to achieve practical ICs with sufficiently low power consumption for products manufactured with critical dimensions approaching 5 nm and beyond.

  • Manufacturability Aware Routing in Nanometer VLSI

    This paper surveys key research challenges and recent results of manufacturability aware routing in nanometer VLSI designs. The manufacturing challenges have their root causes from various integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing processes and steps, e.g., deep sub-wavelength lithography, random defects, via voids, chemical-mechanical polishing, and antenna-effects. They may result in both functional and parametric yield losses. The manufacturability aware routing can be performed at different routing stages including global routing, track routing, and detail routing, guided by both manufacturing process models and manufacturing-friendly rules. The manufacturability/yield optimization can be performed through both correct-by- construction (i.e., optimization during routing) as well as construct-by- correction (i.e., post-routing optimization). This paper will provide a holistic view of key design for manufacturability issues in nanometer VLSI routing.

  • Nanofabrication Techniques for Chipless RFID Sensors

    This chapter first presents an overview of various fabrication techniques that can be used for the development of various chipless radio‐frequency identification (RFID) sensors. It then reviews innovative micro‐ and nanofabrication technologies suitable for roll‐to‐roll chipless RFID sensor printing. Next, the chapter highlights the limitations of conventional fabrication processes and provides industrial solutions for on‐demand, high‐speed printing for flexible, robust, mass productivity of chipless RFID sensor. The state‐of‐the‐art micro‐/nanofabrication processes that can be used to develop the chipless RFID sensor are electrodeposition, physical and chemical vapor deposition, laser ablation and direct pattern writing by photolithography/electron beam lithography (EBL)/ion beam lithography. The nanofabrication processes also include nanoimprint lithography (NIL) and etching, material modification by ion implantation, diffusion, doping, and thermal annealing. Finally, the chapter gives a general survey and comparison of the different fabrication techniques.

  • Gallium Nitride¿¿¿Based Lateral and Vertical Nanowire Devices

    This chapter focuses on the first fabrication and characterization of GaN¿¿¿based lateral and vertical nanowire (NW) field¿¿¿effect transistors (FETs) by using top¿¿¿down approach, where one combined conventional e¿¿¿beam lithography and dry etching techniques with strong anisotropic tetramethyl ammonium hydroxide (TMAH) wet etching. Wet etching usually provides high etching selectivity that often offers an advantage in simplifying the fabrication process compared to the dry plasma etching. To fabricate the AlGaN/GaN O¿¿¿shaped¿¿¿gate nanowire FET, the GaN epitaxial layers were first grown on c¿¿¿plane sapphire substrate by MOCVD. The epitaxial structure of Si¿¿¿doped GaN/undoped¿¿¿GaN/Si¿¿¿doped GaN stack was grown by MOCVD on sapphire substrate. The AlGaN¿¿¿/GaN¿¿¿based omega¿¿¿gate NW FETs have been fabricated using TMAH orientation¿¿¿selective lateral wet etching of atomic layer¿¿¿deposited (ALD)¿¿¿deposited HfO2 sidewall spacer. The top¿¿¿down approach provides a viable pathway toward gate¿¿¿all¿¿¿around (GAA) devices for III¿¿¿nitride semiconductors, which are very promising candidates for steep¿¿¿switching power device applications.
