Thin films are produced from layers of materials ranging from nanometres to micrometres in height. They are increasingly common and are being used in integrated circuit design, optical coatings, protective coatings, and environmental sensing. Thin films can be fabricated using a variety of...
Advanced methods in Glancing Angle Deposition to control thin film morphology, microstructure and textureDownload
Structuring of material on the nanoscale is enabling new functional materials and improving existing technologies. Glancing angle deposition (GLAD) is a physical vapor deposition technique that enables thin film fabrication with engineered columnar structures on the (10 to 100) nm scales. In this...
2015 marks the 50th anniversary of Moore's law, which has described the exponential progress in semiconductor patterning technologies, enabling creation of smaller circuitry features at greater densities. These continued hardware developments, economically mass manufactured, have made possible...
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a powerful ultra-thin film deposition technique that uses sequential self-limiting surface reactions to provide conformal atomic scale film growth. Deposition of ALD films on many substrate systems has been studied before; however, limited data is available on...
Deposition and Characterization of AlN and GaN Thin Films by Plasma-Enhanced Atomic Layer DepositionDownload
III-nitride semiconductors have a combination of structural characteristics and engineering properties that give them a unique place among semiconductors. The fact that they have the same crystal structure makes it possible to deposit alloys with fine-tuned band gaps from infrared to ultraviolet...
Design and Microfabrication of Robust and Highly Integrated Thermal Lab-On-A-Chip Polymeric Systems for Genetic DiagnosisDownload
The lab-on-chip (LOC) technology could transform and greatly enhance the health care system by making genetic diagnosis tests fast, accurate and readily accessible. However, most LOC systems are not prepared to resist variations of their external environment, as they depend upon many...
This thesis investigates technologies directed towards developing photonic crystal display devices. A switching technology based on dye electrophoretic motion within a 1D porous photonic crystal was developed. Dissociated absorbing dye species were moved through the assembled device and...
Iron-cobalt alloys have been extensively studied as potential hard disk drive write head materials due to their potentially high saturation flux densities (~2.4T), low coercivities and ease of deposition. Iron-cobalt plating solutions have, however, been shown to have stability issues,...
Electrically induced instability of thin liquid films is a contactless pattern transfer method, often called electrohydrodynamic (EHD) lithography, which has gained extensive attention due to its ability in creation of novel micro- and nano-sized structures. The need for powerful microprocessors...
