Looking Forward To SPIE, And Beyond

On the eve of this year’s SPIE Advanced Lithography + Patterning conference, I took a look at the IEEE Devices and Systems Roadmap’s lithography section. It’s especially notable for the emergence of EUV lithography, which has quickly become critical for advanced logic. High-NA tools to support still smaller dimensions are on the horizon. In the near-term, though, the key challenge is not ... » read more

Chip Industry’s Technical Paper Roundup: Jan. 31

New technical papers added to Semiconductor Engineering’s library. [table id=77 /] If you have research papers you are trying to promote, we will review them to see if they are a good fit for our global audience. At a minimum, papers need to be well researched and documented, relevant to the semiconductor ecosystem, and free of marketing bias. There is no cost involved for us posting l... » read more

Wafer Scale Transfer of 2D Materials, Graphene

A new technical paper titled "Assessment of Wafer-Level Transfer Techniques of Graphene with Respect to Semiconductor Industry Requirements" was published by researchers at Infineon Technologies AG, RWTH Aachen University, Protemics, and Advantest. Abstract "Graphene is a promising candidate for future electronic applications. Manufacturing graphene-based electronic devices typically requ... » read more
