Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a method to measure the toughness"”the resistance to fracture"”of the thin insulating films that play a critical role in high-performance integrated circuits. The new technique could help improve the reliability and manufacturability of ICs and, better yet, it's one that state-of-the-art microelectronics manufacturers can use with equipment they already own.At issue is the mechanical strength...
