The piezoresistance of aluminum alloy interconnect structures


The effects of applied strain on the resistivity of Al thin film metallization interconnects have been measured with a novel methodology that uses thermal expansion mismatch to produce the strain. The interconnect volumetric strain is induced by thermal cycling of passivated and unpassivated interconnects between '70 and 373 K. The coefficient of… (More)
