21. Micro-scale measurement and modeling of stress in silicon surrounding a tungsten-filled through-silicon via
Published: 10/11/2011
Authors: Ryan P. Koseski, William A Osborn, Stephan J Stranick, Frank W DelRio, Mark D Vaudin, Thuy Dao, Vance H. Adams, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: The stress in silicon surrounding a tungsten-filled through-silicon via (TSV) is measured using confocal Raman microscopy line scans across the TSV both before and after etch removal of an oxide stack used as a mask to define the TSV during fabricati ...

22. Prototype cantilevers for quantitative lateral force microscopy
Published: 9/27/2011
Authors: Mark Reitsma, Richard Swift Gates, Lawrence H Friedman, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: Prototype cantilevers that enable quantitative micro- to nano-scale surface force measurements using contact-mode atomic force microscopy (AFM) are presented. The ,HammerheadŠ cantilevers allow precise optical lever system calibrations for cantilever ...

23. Structure-property relationships for methyl-terminated alkyl self-assembled monolayers
Published: 7/20/2011
Authors: Frank W DelRio, Dave Rampulla, Cherno Jaye, Gheorghe Stan, Richard Swift Gates, Daniel A Fischer, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: Structure-property relationships for methyl-terminated alkyl self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are developed using near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (NEXAFS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). NEXAFS C K-edge spectra are used to ...

24. Direct observation of phase transformation anisotropy in indented silicon using confocal Raman microscopy
Published: 5/31/2011
Authors: Yvonne Beatrice Gerbig, Stephan J Stranick, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: The theoretically-predicted anisotropic nature of the indentation phase transformation in silicon (Si) is observed directly in experiments using hyperspectral, confocal Raman microscopy. The anisotropy is reflected in the two-dimensional distribution ...

25. Size Measurement of Nanoparticles using Atomic Force Microscopy
Published: 1/1/2011
Authors: Jaroslaw Grobelny, Frank W DelRio, Pradeep Narayanan Namboodiri, Doo-In Kim, Vincent A Hackley, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: This chapter outlines procedures for sample preparation and the determination of nanoparticle size using atomic force microscopy (AFM). To start, procedures for dispersing gold nanoparticles on various surfaces such that they are suitable for imagin ...

26. Advanced Nanoscale Elastic Property Measurement by Contact-Resonance Atomic Force Microscopy
Published: 6/23/2010
Authors: Gheorghe Stan, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: In atomic force microscopy (AFM)-based techniques, material information (topography, mechanical, electrical, magnetic, etc.) is retrieved from the nanoscale interaction between the AFM tip and the material probed. As the size of the apex of the AFM ...

27. Measurement of residual stress field anisotropy at indentations in silicon
Published: 6/23/2010
Authors: Yvonne Beatrice Gerbig, Stephan J Stranick, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: The residual stress field around spherical indentations on single crystal silicon (Si) of different crystallographic orientation is mapped by confocal Raman microscopy. All orientations exhibit an anisotropic stress pattern with an orientation spec ...

28. Mechanical properties of one-dimensional nanostructures
Published: 5/23/2010
Authors: Gheorghe Stan, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: The elastic mechanical properties of one-dimensional nanostructures are considered, with an emphasis on the use of contact-resonance atomic force microscopy methods to determine elastic moduli. Various methods used to determine elastic moduli of one- ...

29. Elastic, adhesive, and charge transport properties of a metal-molecule-metal junction: the role of molecular orientation, order, and coverage
Published: 5/20/2010
Authors: Frank W DelRio, Kristen L Steffens, Cherno Jaye, Daniel A Fischer, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: The elastic, adhesive, and charge transport properties of a metal-molecule-metal junction are studied via conducting-probe atomic force microscopy (AFM) and correlated with molecular structure by near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spe ...

30. Strength distribution of single-crystal silicon theta-like specimens
Published: 5/18/2010
Authors: Michael S. Gaither, Frank W DelRio, Richard Swift Gates, Edwin R. Fuller, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: A new test specimen has been developed for micro-scale tensile strength measurements, allowing direct assessment of surface effects on strength. Specimens were formed by deep reactive ion etching, tested with instrumented indentation, and test resul ...
