Applications of thin films in microelectronics

  title={Applications of thin films in microelectronics},
  author={J. Chris Anderson},
Abstract Since the inception of solid circuit technology, thin films have been an essential feature of the integrated circuit, providing interconnections on the silicon chip. The main practical problems associated with them have been lack of adhesion, corrosion and electromigration and these will be reviewed. Thin film circuits are used in hybrid microelectronics and applications and examples will be quoted. The appearance of viable thin-film transistors has opened the way to all- thin-film… CONTINUE READING
