Void intergranual motion under the action of electromigration forces in thin film interconnects with bamboo structure

Oren, EE
Ogurtani, TO
The rigorous formulation of the internal entropy production, and the generalized forces and conjugate fluxes associated with the virtual displacement of a triple junction are presented in multi-component systems. Extensive computer simulations are performed on the void configurational evolution during the intergranual motion; under the actions of capillary and electromigration forces in thin film metallic interconnects with bamboo structure having various grain textures, The texture studies in this work show clearly that there are two different and very distinct modes, namely: the grain boundary carving or tearing mode, and the interconnect edge cutting mode by the oblique slit formation (about 45degrees) on the wind-side of the grain boundary.


Voltammetric and drift spectroscopy investigation in dithiophosphinate-chalcopyrite system
Guler, T; Hicyilmaz, C; Gokagac, G; Ekmekci, Z (Elsevier BV, 2004-11-01)
The mechanism of dithiophosphinate (DTPI) adsorption on chalcopyrite was investigated by diffuse reflectance Fourier transformation (DRIFT) spectroscopy and by cyclic voltammetry (CV) at various pHs. CV experiments showed that the redox reactions occurred at a certain degree of irreversibility on the chalcopyrite surface in the absence of a collector due to preferential dissolution of iron ions in slightly acid solution and irreversible surface coverage by iron oxyhydroxides in neutral and alkaline solution...
Spatial stabilization of Townsend and glow discharges with a semiconducting cathode
Salamov, BG; Ellialtioglu, S; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Lebedeva, NN; Patriskii, LG (IOP Publishing, 1996-03-14)
The physical processes determining the functions of an ionization system and especially the discharge stabilization by the distributed resistance of a semiconducting cathode in such a system are studied. The current-voltage (I-U) characteristics of the system with a semiconducting GaAs cathode are obtained experimentally as functions of the gap pressure P (16-760 Torr) and inter-electrode distance d (10 mu m to 5 mm), which are varied for the first time over very wide ranges. The experiments showed that the...
Long-time behaviour of solutions to a singular heat equation with an application to hydrodynamics
Kitavtsev, Georgy; Taranets, Roman M. (European Mathematical Society Publishing House, 2020-01-01)
In this paper, we extend the results of [8] by proving exponential asymptotic H-1-convergence of solutions to a one-dimensional singular heat equation with L-2-source term that describe evolution of viscous thin liquid sheets while considered in the Lagrange coordinates. Furthermore, we extend this asymptotic convergence result to the case of a time inhomogeneous source. This study has also independent interest for the porous medium equation theory.
HF and DFT studies and vibrational spectra of 1,2-bis(2-pyridyl) ethylene and its zinc (II) halide complexes
Ozhamam, Z.; Yurdakul, Murat Hayrettin; Yurdakul, S. (2007-03-11)
Ab initio restricted Hartree-Fock and density function theory calculations using BLYP, B3LYP and B3PW91 functionals were carried out to study molecular structure and vibrational spectrum of 1,2-bis(2-pyridyl)ethylene (which is abbreviated as bpe). Comparison of calculated and experimental results indicates the density functional B3LYP and BLYP/6-311G* methods are more accurate in predicting fundamental vibrational frequencies than the scaled other approaches. On the basis of calculated results, assignment o...
Adsorption and dissociation of PH3 on SiGe(100) (2x1) surface
Turkmenoglu, Mustafa; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2008-06-01)
The most stable structures for the adsorption and dissociation of phosphine (PH3) on SiGe(100) (2 x 1) surface have been investigated by relative total energy calculations based on density functional theory. According to the optimization calculations, PH3 is adsorbed on the Si (down) and Ge (down) site of the Ge-Si and Ge-Ge dimers on SiGe surface, respectively. The PH2 and H products have been found to be thermodynamically favored in the dissociation path of PH3 on SiGe surface when the system is thermally...
