|Title:||Evaluation of Scanning Maxwell-Stress Microscopy for SPM-Based Nanoelectronics|
|Published:||September 01, 1997|
|Abstract:||A preliminary evaluation of the compatibility, spatial resolution, and sensitivity of scanning Maxwell-stress microscopy (SMM) as an in situ diagnostic technique for SPM oxidation of silicon is presented. These results indicate that SMM will provide us with a more detailed understanding of the reaction mechanism which occurs in the high field conditions at the tip-sample junction during SPM oxidation. SMM also appears to be a promising technique for simultaneously investigating dimensional and electrical properties of molecular distributions within highly complex micro-environments such as phase-separated polymer systems.|
