Sputtering Materials for VLSI and Thin Film DevicesBy
- Jaydeep Sarkar, Research Engineer at Praxair Electronics, Connecticut, USA
An important resource for the microelectronics and flat panel display industries, this book focuses on the development of sputtering targets for conductor, diffusion barrier, reflective, data storage and display applications.
Sarkar reviews essential microelectronics industry topics, including: history and technology trends; chip making fundamentals; deposition and properties of thin films; and the role of sputtering target performance on overall production yield. Materials science fundamentals, types of metallic materials for conductors, diffusion barrier, data storage, and flat panel display applications are also discussed.The author illustrates his arguments with case studies and real-world examples of troubleshooting in an industrial setting.
Researchers, engineers, undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of semiconductors, displays, thin films (nanotechnology and MEMS) and related industries.
