Silicon Strain in Semiconductor Devices

PiFM Imaging of Local Strain in Silicon at Individual FIN Level Carrier mobility enhancement through local strain in silicon is a means of improving transistor performance. In order to effectively validate device design and process conditions, a direct measurement of strain in the nanoscale is desired. Here, we demonstrate true nanoscale strain mapping via PiFM […] Read more
