Apr 2009
In the drive for commercialization of nanotechnology, new measurement challenges have arisen in characterizing the latest semiconductor devices for generating accurate transistor models, which are the building blocks of next-generation integrated circuits (ICs). Suss MicroTec Systems has announced that the receipt of purchase orders for test equipment will enable the development of these next-generation ICs, including CMOS transistor scaling to the 16-nm node and beyond and investigating the reliability characteristics of high-k dielectrics. As part of a partnership with a global consortium of chipmakers including Sematech, Core Wafer Systems and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany, Suss will install advanced 300-mm wafer-level characterization systems with ProbeShield Technology and a cryogenic probe capability system at CNSE’s Albany NanoTech Complex.



GLOSSARY
nanotechnology
The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
