21. Enhanced Mass Transport in Ultra-Rapidly-Heated Ni/Si Thin-Film Multilayers
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 11/15/2009
Authors: Lawrence P. Cook, Richard E Cavicchi, Nabil Bassim, Susie Eustis, Winnie K Wong-Ng, Igor Levin, Ursula R Kattner, Carelyn E Campbell, Christopher B Montgomery, William F. Egelhoff Jr., Mark D Vaudin
Abstract: We have investigated multilayer and bilayer Ni/Si thin films by nano-differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) at ultra rapid scan rates, in a temperature-time regime not accessible with conventional apparatus. DSC experiments were completed at slower ...

22. Epitaxial Si encapsulation of highly misfitting SiC quantum dot arrays formed on Si (001)
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 1/8/2014
Authors: Christopher W. Petz, Dongyue Yang, Alline F Myers, Jeremey Levy, Jerrold Floro
Abstract: This work examines Si overgrowth to encapsulate 3C-SiC quantum dot arrays epitaxially grown on Si substrates. Using transmission electron microscopy we show how the crystalline quality of the Si cap depends on the growth conditions. Overgrowth at 3 ...

23. Gallium Nitride Nanowires for On-Chip Optical Interconnects on Ex-Situ Substrates
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 1/16/2013
Authors: Matthew David Brubaker, Paul Timothy Blanchard, John B Schlager, Aric Warner Sanders, Alexana Roshko, Shannon Marie Madison Duff, Jason Gray, Victor M. Bright, Norman A Sanford, Kristine A Bertness
Abstract: In this letter we report on the fabrication, device characteristics, and optical coupling of a two-nanowire device comprising light-emitting diode and photoconductive GaN nanowires. Axial p-n junction GaN nanowires were grown by molecular beam epita ...

24. Graphene - Is it the future for Semiconductors? A High Level Overview of Materials, Devices and Applications.
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 4/11/2011
Authors: Yaw S Obeng, P Srinivasan
Abstract: In this paper, we attempt to summarize the graphene component of the first two of the GRAPHENE, Ge/III-V AND EMERGING MATERIALS FOR POST-CMOS APPLICATIONS symposia [1, 2]. While not exhaustive and complete, a review of the papers presented at these s ...

25. High Sensitivity FTIR-ATR Study of Ultra-Thin Zr02 Films: A Study of Phase Change
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 2/12/2008
Authors: Safak Sayan, Deane Chandler-Horowitz, Nhan V Nguyen, James R. Ehrstein, Mark Croft
Abstract: Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) using the Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR) method was performed in the mid-IR spectral region on ultrathin ZrO2 films deposited on silicon wafers. A vibrational mode near 710 cm-1 was observed that unde ...

26. High performance airbrushed organic thin film transistors
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 3/30/2010
Authors: Calvin Chan, Lee J Richter, Brad Anthony Dinardo, Cherno Jaye, Brad Conrad, Hyun Wook Ro, David Germack, Daniel A Fischer, Dean M DeLongchamp, David J Gundlach

27. In situ electrochemical small-angle neutron scattering (eSANS) for quantitative structure and redox properties of nanoparticles
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 2/16/2012
Authors: Vivek M Prabhu, Vytautas Reipa
Abstract: Rapid growth in nanomaterial applications highlight limitations of available physicochemical characterization methods. An in situ electrochemical small-angle neutron scattering (eSANS) meth-odology was devised that enables direct measurements of nano ...

28. In situ observation of the indentation-induced phase transformation of silicon thin films
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 3/5/2012
Authors: Yvonne Beatrice Gerbig, Chris A Michaels, Aaron M Forster, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: Indentation-induced phase transformation processes were studied by in situ Raman microspectroscopy of the deformed contact region of silicon on sapphire samples during contact loading and unloading. During loading, the formation of Si-II and another ...

29. Line Width Roughness and Cross Sectional Measurements of Sub-50 nm Structures with CD-SAXS and CD-SEM
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 3/24/2008
Authors: Chengqing C. Wang, Ronald Leland Jones, Kwang-Woo Choi, Christopher L Soles, Eric K Lin, Wen-Li Wu, James S Clarke, John S Villarrubia, Benjamin Bunday
Abstract: Critical dimension small angle x-ray scattering (CD-SAXS) is a measurement platform which is capable of measuring the average cross section and sidewall roughness in patterns ranging from (10 to 500) nm in pitch with sub nm precision. These capabili ...

30. Measurement of heat capacity and enthalpy of formation of Nickel Silicide using Nano-calorimetry
Topic: Semiconductor Materials
Published: 11/2/2009
Authors: Ravi Kummamuru, Lito De La Rama, Liang Hu, Mark D Vaudin, Mikhail Efremov, Martin L Green, David A LaVan, Leslie Allen
Abstract: We present characterization of energetics of the reaction between nickel and silicon thin films using differential scanning nano-calorimetry (nano-DSC). For the first time, nano-DSC measurements up to 850 °C and of enthalpy of thin film reactions hav ...
