That is, primers 3 and 4 anneal
to and ligate across the (1+2) product, and primers 1 and 2 anneal
to and ligate across the (3+4) product.
If a power failure occurs while the furnace is near its upper temperature limit of 2,500F and the outage continues, $100,000 worth of heating elements inside the furnace could be lost, as well as any parts under-going the anneal
This amplification efficiency approaches that of PCR, and with similar specificity as defined by the need for two primers to anneal
to matching target sequences.
Applied's millisecond anneal
technology will enable us to successfully fabricate our customers' most advanced device designs," said Dr.
We are delighted to partner with Aviza to provide furnaceware for slip free, high temperature anneal
processes," said Tom Cadwell, president and CEO of Integrated Materials.
This gives both logic and memory device makers the ability to cover the full array of advanced thermal processing applications in transistor formation, including anneals
for ultra shallow junctions, dry oxidation, silicides, shallow trench isolation (STI) oxides, and boron-doped phosphosilicate glass (BPSG) and titanium nitride (TiN) densification.
We believe this new fully-automated vertical laminar flow polyimide bake solution will provide the best process for the curing of both polyimide or BCB, as well as copper anneal
This feed-forward control approach provides superior spike anneal
performance relative to the lamp RTP feedback systems based on conventional proportional derivative "PID" control.
The STEAMpulse is a breakthrough RTP system for applications such as high-temperature thin and thick oxides, post-dielectric deposition anneals
, selective oxidation and low-temperature copper anneals
The system provides a full suite of leading-edge applications, which includes silicides, TiSi2 or CoSi2; implant anneals
, ultra-shallow junctions without "spike anneals
"; high k dielectric anneals
(Ta2O5, BST, SBT); glass reflow and/or densification (BPSG, PSG); curing of low k films; and low-temperature copper anneal
The formation of ultra-shallow junctions, for example, requires precise, rapid (spike) implant anneals
that limit high temperature exposure of the wafer to a few seconds.
