Semiconductor Nanodefectivity ... with Michael Lercel, SEMATECH

Posted by wesrch09 on Jun. 07, 2013

Nanodefectivity is a hot topic in semiconductors today as the industry pushes ahead towards 14nm. Sematech has been a critical resource in this effort and Michael Lercel, Senior Director of their Nanodefectivity and Metrology Center talks about why and how the demands of nano-scale manufacturing below 50nm is changing the way we deal with particulates and surface contamination along with the effects of nanostructures in the new materials being used both at the wafer level and in the production equipment. He also addresses the economic challenges the supply chain faces in controlling rising R&D costs.
