Silicon links shrink to atomic scale     The narrowest conducting wires in silicon ever produced are shown to have the same electrical current carrying capability as copper, as published in Science.     This means electrical interconnects in silicon can be shrunk to the atomic-scale without losing their functionality — Ohm's law holds true at the atomic-scale.     UNSW researchers will use these wires to address individual atoms —...

A technique originally, applied to monitor the flow of contaminants into shallow groundwater supplies, has been repurposed to monitor carbon dioxide pumped deep underground for storage. Electric Resistance Tomography (ERT) has been installed to track where a plume of injected CO_ moves underground in an oil field (Cranfield Oilfield) near Natchez, Miss. The site is part of the Southeast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (SECARB), a project that eventually will store more than one...

University of Maryland physicists have shown that in graphene the intrinsic limit to the mobility, a measure of how well a material conducts electricity, is higher than any other known material at room temperature. Graphene, a single-atom-thick sheet of graphite, is a new material which combines aspects of semiconductors and metals.Their results, published online in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, indicate that graphene holds great promise for replacing conventional semiconductor materials...

By Lee, Chiapyng; Kuo, Yu-Lin Refractory metal nitride thin films have been widely developed as the diffusion barriers for the aluminum or copper interconnects in integrated circuits. This study reviewed the evolution of diffusion barriers in copper metallization. First, materials characteristics and electrical properties of varions diffusion barriers, titanium nitride (TiN), tantalum nitride (TaN), and titanium zirconium nitride (TiZrN), were examined. These diffusion barriers were...
