The fabrication of an integrated circuit requires a variety ofphysical and chemical processes to be performed on a semiconductorsubstrate. In general, these processes fall into three categories:film deposition, patterning, and semiconductor doping. Films ofboth conductors and insulators are used to connect and isolatetransistors and their components.
By creating structures of these various components millions oftransistors can be built and wired together to form the complexcircuitry of modern microelectronic devices. Fundamental to all ofthese processes is lithography, ie, the formation ofthree-dimensional relief images on the substrate for subsequenttransfer of the pattern to the substrate.
This book presents a complete theoretical and practicaltreatment of the topic of lithography for both students andresearchers. It comprises ten detailed chapters plus threeappendices with problems provided at the end of each chapter.

Dr. Chris A. Mack developed the lithography simulation software PROLITH, and founded and ran the company FINLE Technologies fro ten years. He then served as Vice President of Lithography Technology for KLA-Tencor for five years, until 2005. In 2003 he received the SEMI Award for North America for his efforts in lithography simulation and education. He is also an adjunct faculty member at the University of Texas at Austin. Currently, he writes, teaches, and consults on the field of semiconductor microlithography in Austin, Texas.

Das Dateiformat EPUB ist sehr gut für Romane und Sachbücher geeignet - also für "fließenden" Text ohne komplexes Layout. Bei E-Readern oder Smartphones passt sich der Zeilen- und Seitenumbruch automatisch den kleinen Displays an. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
