Summary & Cover

Table of Contents available here.

Offering thorough coverage of atomic layer deposition (ALD), this book moves from basic chemistry of ALD and modeling of processes to examine ALD in memory, logic devices and machines. Reviews history, operating principles and ALD processes for each device. Publisher : ‎ Springer; 2014th edition (October 18, 2013), 479 pages.

From the Back Cover: Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) was originally designed for depositing uniform passivation layers over a very large area  for display devices in the late 1970s. Only recently, in the 21st century, has the this technique become popular for high integrated semiconductor memory devices. This book discusses ALD for all modern semiconductor devices, the basic chemistry of ALD, and models of ALD processes. The book also details ALD for both mass produced memories and emerging memories. Each chapter of the book provides history, operating principles, and a full explanation of ALD processes for each device.
