Nanolithography: The Art of Fabricating Nanoelectronic and by Martin Feldman

By Martin Feldman


Lithography is the method of patterning and etching to create built-in circuits and different units on semiconductor wafers. Photolithography can't be scaled down a lot extra so so that it will deal with the longer term aid in measurement of semiconductor chips to nanoscale dimensions, scientists have became to replacement nanolithography applied sciences. as well as scaling concerns, the expanding integration of a number of capabilities inside of a unmarried machine poses additional demanding situations which force thoughts in nanolithography and nanofabrication. Chapters conceal lithographic options, together with optical projection, severe ultraviolet (EUV), nanoimprint, electron beam and ion beam lithography, and purposes of nanolithography in nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and microfluidics.


Integrated circuits, and units fabricated utilizing the strategies constructed for built-in circuits, have gradually reduced in size, extra complicated, and extra strong. the speed of shrinking is superb - a few elements are actually quite a few dozen atoms vast. This ebook makes an attempt to respond to the questions, "What comes next?” and "How will we get there?”

Nanolithography outlines the current state-of-the-art in lithographic concepts, together with optical projection in either deep and severe ultraviolet, electron and ion beams, and imprinting. particular realization is paid to comparable concerns, reminiscent of the resists utilized in lithography, the mask (or lack thereof), the metrology wanted for nano-features, modeling, and the restrictions brought on by characteristic side roughness. moreover rising applied sciences are defined, together with the directed meeting of wafer beneficial properties, nanostructures and units, nano-photonics, and nano-fluidics.

This e-book is meant as a advisor to the researcher new to this box, examining similar journals or dealing with the complexities of a technical convention. Its objective is to provide sufficient historical past info to allow one of these researcher to appreciate, and have fun with, new advancements in nanolithography, and to move directly to make advances of his/her own.

* Outlines the present state-of-the-art in replacement nanolithography applied sciences with a view to focus on the long run aid in measurement of semiconductor chips to nanoscale dimensions
* Covers lithographic thoughts, together with optical projection, severe ultraviolet (EUV), nanoimprint, electron beam and ion beam lithography
