Ion Scattering Studies of Surfaces and Layered Structures

  • Feldman L.

Group IV-IV heterostructures with Sn as one constituent have potentially important applications We report on an investigation of the initial stages of interface formation for deposition of Sn on Si(100)2x1 and Si(111)7x7. We find that simple growth occurs up to a critical coverage, independent of temperature. Beyond growth continues to ...

An Improved Interferometric Pressure Optrode

  • Blonder G.
  • Lieberman R.

This paper describes a new sensor based on a Fabry-Perot interference cavity, with elastic walls, created on the end of an optical fiber. Transducers have been constructed having linear reflectance vs pressure curves for physiological pressures.

Polarization Dispersion in a 147km Undersea Lightwave Cable

  • Bergano N.
  • Poole C.
  • Schulte H.
  • Wagner R.

We describe measurements of polarization dispersion in a 147 km undersea lightwave cable at 1.56 micron. The wavelength dependence of the transmitted state of polarization was measured and interpreted in terms of the principle states description of polarization dispersion to determine the difference in the propagation delay time for the ...

Analytical Techniques for Microelectronic Device Development and Failure Mode Diagnostics

  • Liu R.
  • Williams D.

We report on the onset of reverse bias diode leakage due to CVD selective tungsten deposition on (a) progressively shallow n+(As)/p diodes made by implantation into silicon and (b) n+(As or P)/p or p+(BF2)/n diodes made by implantation into CoSi2. Tungsten, nominally 1000Angstrom thick, was deposited in a hot wall ...

Introduction to Fiber Optics Systems Design

  • Briley B.

The subject of fiber optics systems did not exist just a few years ago. In the intervening period, what can now be called the field of Fiber Optics has grown from a speculation on the possible potential performance of fiber fashioned of the 'right' material to many millions of dollars ...

Optical Rotors for Military Applications

  • Bradley J.
  • Klafter L.
  • Shi Y.

The rapid evolution of lightwave technology into today's communication networks, military systems, and industrial applications has spawned a new generation of optical components. One such device, the optical rotor, provides for the transmission of photonic signals across a rotating interface. Low-loss optical rotors for fiber-optic systems are cost-effective while providing ...

X-Ray Structural Studies of Surfaces and Interfaces

  • Robinson I.

Characteristic, diffuse x-ray diffraction patterns have been measured for Si(111) surfaces and interfaces using intense sources of synchrotron radiation. Analysis of the bulk and surface components leads to determination of the structures.

Mechanisms of Shear Thinning in Dilute Polymer Solutions

  • Fredrickson G.
  • Fuller G.
  • Larson R.
  • Magda J.

The origin of shear thinning in dilute polymer solutions has been attributed to four different molecular mechanisms: hydrodynamic interaction between monomers, finite extensibility of the polymer chain, polymer excluded volume, and internal viscosity. However, the four explanations differ in the predicted effect of solvent viscosity and polymer molecular weight upon ...

Measuring Cost of Quality in the Development Process

  • Nakamura S.
  • Thompson W.

This paper first identifies Cost of Quality (COQ) categories, and defines COQ activities in the development process. Guidelines are provided for developing a COQ measurement plan. Second, a COQ measurement plan is presented which emphasizes failure cost or "Cost of Waste" using existing data sources. Finally, a data analysis and ...

Surface X-ray Diffraction

  • Robinson I.

A single monolayer of atoms at a crystal surface or interface is itself a two-dimensional crystal with a characteristic diffraction pattern of streaks perpendicular to the plane. Sources of synchrotron radiation have now evolved to the point that these weak diffraction signals can be detected by conventional diffractometry; the experimental ...

The Next Generation of Materials and Processing for Electronic and Opto-Electronic Technologies; Role of Computation

  • Poate J.

The role of computer modelling and simulation in electronic device technology is well illustrated by the subject of ion implantation. Numerous programs now exist that calculate the range and straggling of the implanted species. The initial computations came from the radiation damage community. Indeed the Monte Carlo computations of Robinson ...

Superconductivity has been observed in La sub 2-x (Sr, Ba, Ca) sub x CuO sub 4 at temperatures near 40K. This paper presents data on other substitutions in this phase and on a number of other phases with the K sub 2 NiF sub 4 structure. Data is also presented ...

Integrated Voice-Data For Large Business Customers Using DS1 Facilities

  • Gaz R.
  • Relyea W.

In today's environment, a typical large business customer's traffic is 80% voice and 20% data. Due to tariff and/or performance considerations, large business customers serve their voice and data traffic over separate networks. Given the predominance of voice traffic, the larger networks are the voice networks, both switched and dedicated.
