The influence of model flexibility upon simulated viscosity was investigated. NEMD simulations of viscosity were performed on seven pure fluids using three different models for each: one with rigid bonds and angles, one with flexible angles and rigid bonds, and one with flexible bonds and angles. Three nonpolar fluids (propane, n-butane and isobutane), two(More)

I also extend my gratitude to Dr. David Biros for his guidance and for introducing me to deception research. Sincere thanks are also extended to Dr. Dursun Delen and Dr. Carol(More)
Increasing complexity and manufacturing costs, along with the fundamental limits of planar CMOS devices, threaten to slow down the historical pace of progress in the semiconductor industry. We report herein an efficient, low-cost, " greener " way to fabricate dual-damascene copper (Cu) on-chip interconnect or Back-End-Of-the-Line (BEOL) structures using a(More)
