    This paper presents a new technique for the monolithic heterogeneous integration of compound semiconductor devices with silicon integrated circuits, and establishes the theoretical foundation for a key element of the ...
  • Shah, M.; Zeng, K.; Tay, A.A.O.; Suresh, Subra (2002-01)
    With increasing miniaturization in microelectronics the wirebonds used in IC packages are witnessing a thrust towards fine pitch wirebonding. To have a precise control over loop height of the wirebond for fine pitch ...
  • Lee, M.L.; Li, Yi; Zhong, Yi; Carter, W. Craig (2004-01)
    We have studied the mechanical properties of monolithic bulk metallic glasses and composite in the La based alloys. La₈₆₋yAl₁₄(Cu, Ni)y (y=24 to 32) alloy systems was used to cast the ...
  • Lee, Irene Mei Ling; Li, Yi; Carter, W. Craig (2003-01)
    Influence of different microstructure of La-based fully amorphous samples and its composites on the impact fracture energy were investigated and discussed. Results showed improvement in fracture energy of glassy metals ...
  • Spearing, S. Mark (2003-01)
    An overview is provided of materials and processes research currently being conducted in support of MEMS device design at MIT. Underpinning research is being conducted in five areas: room temperature strength characterization, ...
  • Takahashi, A. R.; Thompson, Carl V.; Carter, W. Craig (2003-01)
    During the evaporative deposition of polycrystalline thin films, the development of a tensile stress at small film thicknesses is associated with island coalescence. Several continuum models exist to describe the magnitude ...
  • Reed, John; Ceder, Gerbrand; Van Der Ven, A. (2002-01)
    Ab Initio calculations suggest that partially lithiated layered LixMnO₂ transforms to spinel in a two-stage process. In the first stage, a significant fraction of the Mn and Li ions rapidly occupy tetrahedral sites, forming ...
  • Maldovan, Martin. (2002-01)
    Lately, there has been an increasing interest in studying the propagation of electromagnetic waves in periodic dielectric structures (photonic crystals). Like the electron propagation in semiconductors, these structures ...
  • Vajpeyi, Agam P.; Chua, Soo-Jin; Fitzgerald, Eugene A.; Tripathy, S. (2004-01)
    Wurtzite GaN epilayers grown by metal organic chemical vapor deposition on sapphire substrates were subsequently ion implanted with Er to a dose of 5×10¹⁵ cm⁻². The implanted samples were annealed in nitrogen atmosphere ...
  • Koh, Yaw Koon; Wong, Chee Cheong (2006-01)
    Defect control in colloidal crystals is essential for these nanostructures to be effective as photonic bandgap (PBG) materials. We have used in-situ monitoring of the PBG of a colloidal crystal to study the structural ...
  • Chang, Choon Wai; Gan, C.L.; Thompson, Carl V.; Pey, Kin Leong; Choi, Wee Kiong; Hwang, N. (2004-01)
    Electromigration experiments have been carried out on straight interconnects that have single vias at each end, and are divided into two segments by a via in the center ("dotted-I" structures). For dotted-i structures in ...
  • Fitzgerald, Eugene A.; Lee, Minjoo L.; Leitz, Christopher W.; Antoniadis, Dimitri A. (2003-01)
    Biaxial tensile strained Si grown on SiGe virtual substrates will be incorporated into future generations of CMOS technology due to the lack of performance increase with scaling. Compressively strained Ge-rich alloys with ...
  • Zhang, Sam; Fu, Yongqing; Du, Hejun; Liu, Yang; Chen, Tupei (2004-01)
    The design methodology and realization of nanocomposite films aiming for mechanical (superhardness, toughness) and functional (optical, microelectronic) properties were discussed in this paper. Superhard TiCrCN and ...
