Nanodefectivity is a hot topic in semiconductors today as the industry pushes ahead towards 14nm. Sematech
has been a critical resource in this effort and Michael Lercel, Senior Director of their Nanodefectivity and Metrology Center talks about why and how the demands of nano-scale manufacturing below 50nm is changing the way we deal with particulates and surface contamination along with the effects of nanostructures in the new materials being used both at the wafer level and in the production equipment. He also addresses the economic challenges the supply chain faces in controlling rising R&D costs
weVISION is a series of video interviews of visionaries by G Dan Hutcheson, his career spans more than thirty years, in which he became a well-known as a visionary for helping companies make businesses out of technology. This includes hundreds of successful programs involving product development, positioning, and launch in Semiconductor, Technology, Medicine, Energy, Business, High Tech, Environment, Electronics, healthcare and Business divisions.
