Stress tensor mesostructures for deterministic figuring of thin substrates


New research paper from MIT and University of Arizona, funded by NASA. Abstract "Accessing the immense value of freeform surfaces for mass-sensitive applications such as space optics or metaform optical components requires fabrication processes that are suited to figuring thin substrates. We present stress tensor mesostructures for precisely correcting figure errors, even after microstruc... » read more

Selective etching of silicon nitride over silicon oxide using ClF3 /H2 remote plasma


Researchers from Sungkyunkwan University, MIT and others present an option for selective etching. Abstract "Precise and selective removal of silicon nitride (SiNx) over silicon oxide (SiOy) in a oxide/nitride stack is crucial for a current three dimensional NOT-AND type flash memory fabrication process. In this study, fast and selective isotropic etching of SiNx over SiOy has been investiga... » read more
