2007 Conference on Insulating Films and Semiconductors (INFOS)

Nano-electrics are changing rapidly since new materials and device architectures are being introduced in order to continue miniaturization and enhance performance without jeopardizing reliability and yield. Insulating films have always been and they still are at the heart of electronic devices regulating charge transfer between metals and semiconductors. Moving beyond their traditional role however and as they become thinner than a few atomic layers, insulators and required.

  • Characterization Techniques for Film Characteristics

    This chapter shows data regarding whisker phenomena that are characterized by the most recent transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) techniques. It introduces several examples of SEM image use in tin whisker analysis: observation of tin whisker shape, measurement of tin whisker length and kink angle, and confirmation that tin whiskers do indeed generate from the base metal. The chapter describes concrete examples of whisker analysis that use the techniques. The chapter also discusses general crystal orientation characterization techniques and then focuses on the principles of and advances in EBSD and its use in investigating the effects of crystal orientation on tin whisker formation. Many examples of characterization by using TEM, SEM, and EBSD techniques for tin and tin???based alloy finishes show how to clarify the essential characteristics of the films so that the authors can deepen their understanding of whisker formation mechanisms.

  • Quantitative Assessment of Stress Relaxation in Tin Films by the Formation of Whiskers, Hillocks, and Other Surface Defects

    This chapter focuses on development and validation of a surface???defect counting procedure, which can be applied in research on the specific mechanisms responsible for stress relaxation and tin whisker formation in tin films. It describes how to quantify the stress relaxation that can be attributed to the separate types of defects, each with a lower reliability risk than tin whiskers, and how the data can be combined to quantify overall stress relaxation in a given film under a given set of conditions. The chapter explains what comparisons of such data from the same films under different conditions, or different films under the same stressing conditions. It reveals about the relationship between film microstructure, stressing conditions, and stress relaxation. The defect assessment methodology documented evolution of film microstructure and defect formation among the 18 different sample types, providing a method to quantify the complexity of stress relaxation in tin surface finishes.

    Today's blockbuster video games -- and their never-ending sequels, sagas, and reboots -- provide plenty of excitement in high-resolution but for the most part fail to engage a player's moral imagination. In Beyond Choices, Miguel Sicart calls for a new generation of video and computer games that are ethically relevant by design. In the 1970s, mainstream films -- including The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, Raging Bull, and Taxi Driver -- filled theaters but also treated their audiences as thinking beings. Why can't mainstream video games have the same moral and aesthetic impact? Sicart argues that it is time for games to claim their place in the cultural landscape as vehicles for ethical reflection.Sicart looks at games in many manifestations: toys, analog games, computer and video games, interactive fictions, commercial entertainments, and independent releases. Drawing on philosophy, design theory, literary studies, aesthetics, and interviews with game developers, Sicart provides a systematic account of how games can be designed to challenge and enrich our moral lives. After discussing such topics as definition of ethical gameplay and the structure of the game as a designed object, Sicart offers a theory of the design of ethical game play. He also analyzes the ethical aspects of game play in a number of current games, including Spec Ops: The Line, Beautiful Escape: Dungeoneer, Fallout New Vegas, and Anna Anthropy's Dys4Ia. Games are designed to evoke specific emotions; games that engage players ethically, Sicart argues, enable us to explore and express our values through play.

  • High Temperature Contacts to Chemically Vapour Deposited Diamond FilmsReliability Issues

    Refractory metals (Ti, Mo, Wand Ta) with precious metal overlayers (Au and Pt) were used to form ohmic contacts to polycrystalline boron doped chemically vapour deposited diamond films. Refractory metals afford high resistance to thermal and environmenal stresses. In addition, many refractory metals show a chemical affinity for carbon, resulting in the formation of a metal-carbide reaction layer with reduced Schottky barrier height at the contact interface. Low resistance ohmic contacts can be formed by heavy boron doping of the diamond film in the contact region. The viability and reliability of various refractory metal contact schemes were assessed to determine their upper operating temperatures and life expectancies in hostile environments. Reverse engineering of the contacts and detailed material analysis revealed likely failure mechanisms. It was found that Mo/Au gave the highest degree of thermal stability, while Ti gave the lowest contact resistance. The contact resistance was strongly dependent on the doping level of the diamond film

  • Amorphous Metallizations for HighTemperature Semiconductor Device Applications

    In this paper we present the initial results of work on a new class of semiconductor metallizations which appear to hold great promise as primary metallizations and diffusion barriers for high-temperature device applications. These metallizations consist of sputter-deposited films of high- Tg amorphous-metal alloys which (primarily because of the absence of grain boundaries) exhibit exceptionally good corrosion resistance and low diffusion coefficients. Amorphous films of the alloys Ni-Nb, Ni-Mo, W-Si, and Mo-Si have been deposited on Si, GaAs, GaP, and various insulating substrated, The films adhere extremely well to the substrates and remain amorphous during thermal cycling to at least 500°C. Rutherford Backscattering (RBS) and Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES) measurements indicate atomic diffusivities in the 10- 19 cm 2/S range at 450°C.

  • Structure and Electron Transport in Irradiated Monolayer Graphene

    Disordered graphene has attracted the attention of many researchers. Mainly, this is due to the possibility of obtaining a high???resistance state of graphene films, which is of interest for application in electronics. This chapter discusses ion bombardment as a way of gradually inducing disorder in monolayer graphene. In variable???range???hopping (VRH), only localized states within an optimal energy band near the Fermi level are involved in the hopping process. This strong anisotropy indicates unambiguously different mechanisms of magnetoresistance (MR): negative MR in perpendicular fields is connected with orbital effects, while positive MR in parallel fields is determined by the spin polarization. As a result of averaging over different configurations, the contribution of the scattering sites to the total hopping probability vanishes due to destructive interference. The perpendicular magnetic field suppresses the interference, which leads to an increase of the hopping probability and, therefore, to the negative MR.

  • High Temperature Hybrids for use up to 275CDrift and Lifetime

    This paper reviews the drift and lifetime performance of 275°C hybrid microcircuits that were recently developed by Teledyne Philbrick and Sandia National Laboratories. This hybrid technology is based on temperature tolerant thick films and discrete silicon JFETs. The results of high temperature circuit testing are reviewed; component and circuit degradation and fail ure modes are described and compared to predictions; and finally, design rules are given to maximize lifetimes and to minimize performance drift for up to 10,000 hours of operation at 275°C. Although these circuits were developed for instrumenting geothermal bqreholes, many other applications for this technology exist in such areas as fossil fuel exploration and production systems, jet engine monitors, and nuclear reactor monitors.
