  • Rapid trench initiated recrystallization and stagnation in narrow Cu interconnect lines 

    O'Brien, Brendan; Rizzolo, Michael; Prestowitz, Luke; Dunn, Kathleen (American Institute of Physics, 2015-09-01)
    Understanding and ultimately controlling the self-annealing of Cu in narrow interconnect lines has remained a top priority in order to continue down-scaling of back-end of the line interconnects. Recently, it was hypothesized ...
  • Surface oxidation of the topological insulator Bi2Se3 

    Green, Avery J.; Dey, Sonal; An, Yong Q.; O'Brien, Brendan; O'Mullane, Samuel; Thiel, Bradley; Diebold, Alain C. (Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology A: Vacuum, Surfaces, and Films, 2016)
    An understanding of the aging and oxidation of the (0001) surface of Bi2Se3 is critical to a comprehensive physical picture of its topologically protected surface states. Here, the authors contribute new experimental ...
