As the semiconductor industry turns to alternate conductors to replace Cu for future interconnect nodes, much attention as been focused on evaluating the electrical performance of Ru. The typical hexagonal close-packed (hcp) phase has been extensively studied, but relatively little attention has been paid to the face-centered cubic (fcc) phase, which has been shown to nucleate in confined structures and may be present in tight-pitch interconnects. Using \emph{ab initio} techniques, we benchmark… Expand
