1. Dependency of Morphology on Miscut Angle for Si(111) Etched in NH^d4^F
Published: 5/1/2003
Authors: Joseph Fu, Hui Zhou, John A Kramar, Richard M Silver, S Gonda
Abstract: Using scanning probe microscopy, we have examined the surfaces produced by etching several different vicinal Si(111) samples in NH^d4^F aqueous solution. In agreement with others, we found that deoxygenation of the etchant generally reduces the numbe ...

2. Nano-Lithography in Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) for Real World Applications
Published: 3/11/2004
Authors: James D Gilsinn, Hui Zhou, Bradley N Damazo, Joseph Fu, Richard M Silver
Abstract: As nano-lithography technology improves, more companies and research groups have the capability to create nano-scale structures. Scanning tunneling microscopes (STMs) are commonly used to create these structures and evaluate them afterward. One diffi ...

3. 3D Image Correction of Tilted Sample Through Coordinate Transformation
Published: 1/1/2007
Authors: Wei Chu, Joseph Fu, Ronald G Dixson, Theodore Vincent Vorburger
Abstract: In scanned probe measurements of micrometer- or nanometer-scale lines, it is nearly impossible to maintain the sample in a perfectly level position, and even a small amount of tilt angle can contribute to the accuracy of the result of measurand such ...

4. A Model for Step Height, Edge Slope and Linewidth Measurements Using AFM
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Xuezeng Zhao, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Joseph Fu, Jun-Feng Song, C Nguyen
Abstract: Nano-scale linewidth measurements are performed in semiconductor manufacturing and in the data storage industry and will become increasingly important in micro-mechanical engineering. With the development of manufacturing technology in recent years, ...

5. A New Design and Uncertainty Budget for a Metrology UHV-STM Used in Direct Measurements of Atom Spacings
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: S Gonda, Hui Zhou, Joseph Fu, Richard M Silver
Abstract: A basic scheme of direct, highly accurate dimensional measurements of nanostructures is presented. We have constructed a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) unit combined with a diode laser-based Michelson interferometer module. The compact size of t ...

6. A Study of the Surface Texture of Polycrystalline Phosphor Films Using AFM
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Zsolt Revay, J Schneir, D Brower, John S Villarrubia, Joseph Fu, et al
Abstract: Stimulable phosphor thin films are being investigated for use as optical data storage media. We have successfully applied atomic force microscopy (AFM) to the measurement of the surface texture of these films. Determination of the surface texture of ...

7. A Time-Resolved Kinetic Monte-Carlo Simulation Study On Si (111) Etching
Published: 1/1/2007
Authors: Hui Zhou, Joseph Fu, Richard M Silver
Abstract: In this paper we have extended the Kinetic Monte-Carlo simulation method to study the etching dynamics of Si (111) surfaces in NH4F in a time-resolved basis. We have examined the step-flow dynamics of Si(111) etching using various simulation window s ...

8. A moving window correlation method to reduce the distortion of SPM images
Published: 8/20/2009
Authors: Wei Chu, Joseph Fu, Ronald G Dixson, Ndubuisi George Orji, Theodore Vincent Vorburger
Abstract: Many scanning probe microscopes (SPMs), such as the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and atomic force microscope (AFM), use piezoelectric actuators operating in open loop for generating the scans of the surfaces. However, nonlinearities mainly cau ...

9. Accurate Dimensional Metrology With Atomic Force Microscopy
Published: 6/1/2000
Authors: Ronald G Dixson, R Koning, Joseph Fu, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Thomas B Renegar
Abstract: Atomic force microscopes (AFMs) generate three dimensional images with nanometer level resolution and, consequently, are used in the semiconductor industry as tools for sub-micrometer dimensional metrology. Measurements commonly performed with AFMs a ...

10. Accurate Force Measurements for Miniature Mechanical Systems: A Review of Progress
Published: 9/1/1997
Authors: Lowell P. Howard, Joseph Fu
Abstract: A survey of nanonewton force calibration techniques suitable for micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) is presented. The reviewed techniques include: mass-derived force, pendulums, calibrated master spings, resonance and electromagnetic techniques. ...
