For advanced devices at 65 nm node and beyond, nickel silicide formed by depositing Ni or its alloys with subsequent annealing has been chosen as the source/drain and gate contact materials. An in-situ dry chemical cleaning technology (Siconi ) has been developed to be integrated with PVD nickel deposition, thus forming a defect-free silicide/Si interface.(More)
Ir-catalyzed direct diborylation of tetracene gave a 1:1 mixture of 2,8- and 2,9-bis[(pinacolato)boryl]tetracenes, which were separated by recrystallization. These diboryltetracenes are useful building blocks for the regiospecific synthesis of extended pi-conjugated tetracenes directed to semiconductors for organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).(More)
5,12-Bis(methylthio)tetracene (2) and 5,11-bis(methylthio)tetracene (3) were synthesized. DFT calculations indicate that the HOMO and LUMO energy levels of 2 and 3 are lowered by 0.13-0.24 eV and their HOMO-LUMO energy gaps are reduced by 0.1 eV relative to those of tetracene. X-ray crystallographic data revealed that 2 is arranged as a result of a 1-D(More)
