Crystal Growth and Evaulation of Silicon for VLSI and ULSI

MEMS Cost Analysis

Golla Eranna

Edited by

Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute (CEERI), Pilani, India

Ron Lawes

Written for engineers and researchers working in semiconductor fabrication industries, this book discusses the systematic growth of Si single crystals using standard techniques with add-on layers for specific applications. It is one of the first books to cover the complete evaluation of Si wafers, from sand to useful wafers for device fabrication. The book shows how to evaluate the suitability of Si wafers in VLSI and ULSI processing technology before implementing the highly sophisticated and systematically drawn process methodology.

This volume demonstrates show cost analysis can be adapted to MEMS, taking into account the wide range of processes and equipment, the major differences with the established semiconductor industry, and the presence of both large-scale, product-oriented manufacturers and small- and medium-scale foundries. It examines representative costs in sufficient detail and accuracy for specific equipment, processes, products, and foundries to show how financial models can be introduced to estimate the cost and price for a MEMS product.

Inside the Photon

Amyloid Structures in Nature

A Journey towards Health

Edited by

Anthony H.J. Fleming and Elizabeth Bauer

Suzi Jarvis and Anika Mostaert

Biophotonics Research Institute, Highett, Australia

Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland

This book describes the newly discovered layer of biophotonics underlying all atomic chemistry and biochemistry. For instance, the range in biological species within flora is dependent on this biophotonic layer of interaction within atomic and biomolecular structures. The book examines the phonon, the quantum of acoustic (or vibrational) energy, and the photon. It shows how the biophonon sits aside the biophoton as an element within biological structures.

Bringing together a wide variety of examples of functional amyloid in a single volume, this book explores the importance of amyloid fibrils in fungi, bacteria, algae, invertebrate, and vertebrate animals for providing environmental protection, structural integrity, and regulating biochemical processes. It highlights many of the extraordinary examples of functional amyloid found to date. It provides an exciting perspective for the study of amyloid deposits as important and useful protein structures widespread in nature.

This book presents an inside look at the U.S. government’s quest to build a quantum computer capable of solving complex mathematical problems and hacking the publickey encryption codes used to secure the Internet. The “killer app” refers to Shor’s quantum factoring algorithm, which would unveil the encrypted communications of the entire Internet if a quantum computer could be built to run the algorithm. Schrödinger’s notion of quantum entanglement— and his infamous cat—is at the heart of it all.

This book proposes smart encoding methods and acquisition sequences to deal with frequency displacement due to residual static magnetic field inhomogeneity, motion, and undersampling. After a concise review of basic mathematical tools and the physics of MRI, the book describes each limitation and then proposes solutions for overcoming it. Requiring few or no hardware modifications, these speculative methods represent building blocks for more advanced MRI applications. The book also looks to the future of MRI.

This book covers recent developments in the interdisciplinary field of dynamics and control of patterns in nonlinear biological systems described by excitable media models. Using examples of many reallife systems, it explores the impact of pattern dynamics on the structural and functional heterogeneities in the system. The book also discusses low-amplitude control schemes for eliminating patterns from an excitable medium, such as lifethreatening cardiac arrhythmia. Codes for numerical simulation are provided in the appendix.

Advances in design methods and process technologies are leading to a continuous increase in the complexity of integrated circuits (ICs). However, the increased complexity and nanometer-size features of modern ICs make them susceptible to manufacturing defects as well as performance and quality issues. This book covers common problems in process variations, power supply noise, crosstalk, resistive opens/bridges, and design-for-manufacturing (DfM)-related rule violations. The book also addresses testing for small-delay defects (SDDs), which can cause timing failures on both critical and non-critical paths in the circuit.

Textbook

Edited by

Andrei Khrennikov Linnaeus University, Sweden

Recent interest in quantum foundations has been caused by the tremendous development of quantum information science and its applications to quantum computing and communication. It is now clear that some of the difficulties encountered in realizations of quantum information processing have roots at the very fundamental level. To solve such problems, quantum theory has to be reconsidered. This book is devoted to the analysis of the probabilistic structure of quantum theory, probing the limits of classical probabilistic representations of quantum phenomena.

Defects and Damage in Composite Materials and Structures Rikard Benton Heslehurst University of New South Wales, Canberra, Australia

This book describes in detail the types of defects and damage found in composite materials and how they react to structural loading conditions that will determine the loss of structural integrity due to their presence in the material. Identification and classification of the defect/damage are used to generalize the defect type and allow appropriate stress analysis to determine the criticality of the defect in the composite structure. This then leads to the most effective and efficient design repair method(s). Print ISBN: 978-1-4665-8047-3 April 2014, 6-1/8 x 9-1/4, 208 pp. Suggested Price: $169.95 / £108.00

This book offers guidance to help tackle corrosion issues in the oil and gas industries. Engineers, scientists, and business managers from around the world explain the chemical causes of corrosion and describe strategies for preventing, monitoring, and mitigating corrosion. They also discuss corrosion hazards and risk and highlight the need for companies to maintain their infrastructure to remain competitive. Combining theory with practical, state-of-the-art strategies and examples, this is an invaluable reference for anyone involved in corrosion management and materials selection.

This book describes the basic physics and recent advancement of carbon-based superconductors (CBSCs), such as diamond, graphite, graphene, and carbon nanotubes. The small mass of carbon atoms provides high phonon frequency, high Debye temperature, and chances to high superconducting transition temperature (Tc). Individual materials also provide different mechanisms and chances to high Tc. Consequently, it is highly expected that CBSCs will open the door to high-Tc superconductivity, for example, CuO2based SCs.

Techniques and Applications

Hiroyuki Shima and Motohiro Sato Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan

Carbon nanotubes offer huge potential in so many fields due in part to their significant mechanical properties. The mechanical deformation of carbon nanotubes causes considerable changes in their physical and chemical properties through the nontrivial structure-property correlation. A strong understanding of their deformation mechanism and available geometry is therefore crucial to developing nanotube-based applications. This book concentrates on the remarkable mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes, covering theoretical and experimental progresses from the last decade.
