Physics and Application of Nanoelectronic Devices

nano and molecular electronics An overview of the physics and device application of nanoelectronic devices will be presented. Topics will range from nanoscale silicon devices and their theoretical limits, to nanostructured, low dimensional and single electron devices, to molecular scale electronic transport physics.

Nanolithography and Nanoprocessing

micro nano lithography and semiconductor processing In the fields of micro and nanolithography, major advancements in resolution have historically been achieved through use of shorter wavelengths of light. Along this path, such improvements come with an ever-increasing cost for photolithographic tools. As conventional projection lithography reaches its limits, Next Generation Lithography (NGL) tools using shorter wavelengths and higher numerical apertures may provide a means to further pattern shrinks, but are expected to have a price tag that is prohibitive for many companies. Clearly, technologies that can reduce the tool cost by an order of magnitude will have a significant effect on the economics of the fabrication process.

Imprint lithography is essentially a nanomolding process in which the topography of a template defines the patterns created on a substrate. Investigations by several researchers in the sub-50 nm regime indicate that imprint lithography resolution is only limited by the resolution of the template fabrication process. It possesses important advantages over photolithography and other NGL techniques since it does not require expensive projection optics, or advanced illumination sources that are central to photolithography and NGL technologies.

nano imprint lithography and molding This tutorial will review the status and prospects of several NGLs, with an emphasis on imprint lithography. Beam related patterning techniques including electron beam lithography, x-ray lithography, deep ultra violet lithography, and extreme ultraviolet lithography will be explored. Imprint lithography has many variants, but can generally be broken into three sub-sections: Soft Lithography, Nanoimprint Lithography, and Step and Flash Imprint Lithography. A derivative of Nanoimprint Lithography, Step and Flash Imprint Lithography, or S-FIL, addresses the issue of alignment by using a transparent fused silica template, thereby facilitating the viewing of alignment marks on the template and wafer simultaneously. The various aspects of the S-FIL process that are necessary for a robust lithographic technology include the template, the tool, the resist, and the pattern transfer. These topics, along with actual device applications will be discussed. If time permits, additional lithographic technologies such as Dip Pen Nanolithography and Molecular Transfer Lithography (MxL) will also be discussed.

Course Instructor

Mark Reed Mark Reed is the Harold Hodgkinson Chair of Engineering and Applied Science at Yale University, which he joined after co-founding the first U.S. Nanoelectronics research program at Texas Instruments. His research activities have included the investigation of nanoscale and mesoscopic systems, electronic transport in heterojunction systems, artificially structured materials and devices, MEMS and bioMEMS, nanotechnology, and molecular electronics. Mark is the author of more than 150 professional publications, 5 books, has given ten plenary and over 200 invited talks, and holds 23 U.S. and foreign patents. He has been elected to the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering and Who's Who in the World. His awards include; Fortune Magazine “Most Promising Young Scientist” (1990), the Kilby Young Innovator Award (1994), the DARPA ULTRA Most Significant Acheivement Award (1997), the Harold Hodgkinson Chair of Engineering and Applied Science at Yale University (1999), the Syracuse University Distinguished Alumni award (2000), the Forbes magazine “E-Gang” (2001), the Fujitsu ISCS Quantum Device Award (2001), the Yale Science and Engineering Association Award for Advancement of Basic and Applied Science (2002), and in 2003 was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society.

Doug Resnick Doug Resnick received his Ph.D. in 1981 from the Ohio State University in the field of Solid State Physics. Before joining Molecular Imprints, Doug worked at Motorola Labs from 1990 till 2004. From 1981-1990, Doug worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories. Development projects included x-ray lithography, GaAs direct write and plasma etching of photomasks. Doug joined Motorola in 1990 and led the development effort for x-ray mask pattern transfer. Doug was a Section Manager in Motorola Labs, and a member of Motorola’s Scientific Advisory Board. Doug’s previous assignment was to provide lithographic and plasma-processing solutions for a diverse group of programs that are developing products in the Embedded Systems and Physical Sciences Labs. Doug was responsible for developing Motorola’s Step and Flash Imprint Lithography research program, and has authored or co-authored over 100 technical publications and holds 16 U.S. patents. He has served as the conference chair for both the EIPBN and SPIE Microlithography Symposiums.
