We specifically consider 69 countries with at least 20 years of observations on total tax revenue during the period 1970-2009—21 highincome, 23 middle-income and 25(More)

This paper gives some insights in the applications where PECVD nitrides can be introduced to replace the LPCVD layers and how the process parameters need to be varied to obtain the desired properties. Film properties like stress, hydrogen content, wet etch rate and deposition rate are reported. The nitrides are optimized for specific applications and(More)
