Properties of Commercially Available Hexagonal Boron Nitride Grown By The CVD Method


A new technical paper titled "On the quality of commercial chemical vapour deposited hexagonal boron nitride" was published by researchers at KAUST and the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan. Abstract "The semiconductors industry has put its eyes on two-dimensional (2D) materials produced by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) because they can be grown at the wafer level with sm... » read more

Chip Industry Week In Review


By Jesse Allen, Gregory Haley, and Liz Allan. The Japanese government approved $3.9 billion in funding for chipmaker Rapidus to expand its foundry business, of which 10% will be invested in advanced packaging. This is in addition to the previously announced $2.18 billion in funding. In a meeting next week, the U.S. and Japan are expected to cooperate on increasing semiconductor development a... » read more

Chip Industry Week In Review


By Adam Kovac, Karen Heyman, and Liz Allan.  China introduced strict procurement guidelines aimed at blocking the use of AMD and Intel processors in government computers. Meanwhile, China urged the Netherlands to ease restrictions on deep ultraviolet (DUV) litho equipment, according to Nikkei Asia. DUV is an older technology, based on 193nm ArF lasers, but in conjunction with multi-p... » read more

Research Bits: August 29


Resistive switching with hafnium oxide Researchers from the University of Cambridge, Purdue University, University College London, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and University at Buffalo used hafnium oxide to build a resistive switching memory device that processes data in a similar way as the synapses in the human brain. At the atomic level, hafnium oxide has no structure, with the hafni... » read more

Research Bits: July 24


Protons improve ferroelectric memory Researchers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Qingdao University, and Zhejiang University developed a method to produce multiple phase transitions in ferroelectric materials, which could increase storage capacity for neuromorphic memory. The approach uses proton-mediation of the ferroelectric material indium selenide. The r... » read more
