Emerging Research Materials


This chapter provides the material research community with guidance on specific research challenges that must be addressed in a laboratory setting for an emerging family of candidate materials to warrant consideration as a viable ITRS solution. Each international technology working group (ITWG) has identified needs for new materials to meet future technology requirements and assessed the potential for low dimensional materials (carbon nanotubes (CNTs), nanowires, graphitic systems, and nanoparticles), macromolecules, self-directed assembled materials, spin materials, complex metal oxides, and selected interfaces. For these emerging materials, this chapter presents requirements for materials, processes, interfaces, and supporting metrology, modeling, and simulation. In the 2009 ERM, we include a critical assessment of alternate channel materials for CMOS extension. To enable this assessment, the ITRS ERM is being restructured focus on applications where different materials for the same application will be discussed in the same section. In addition, the ERM includes results of a joint ERD-ERM assessment of beyond CMOS technologies needing increased focus to accelerate progress.

The scope of emerging research materials (ERM) covers materials properties, synthetic methods, metrology, and modeling required to support future emerging research devices (ERD), lithography, front end process (FEP), interconnects, and assembly and package (A&P) needs. For ERD memory and logic devices, the scope includes planar III-V, Ge, nanowires, carbon nanotubes, graphene and graphitic materials, spin materials, and complex metal oxides. Furthermore, the special assessment of beyond CMOS logic identified that carbon based (carbon nanotubes and graphene) materials and devices receive increased focus, so a potential solutions table is included. Some of the evolutionary and some of the revolutionary ERD can be fabricated with conventional materials and process technologies that are already covered in other sections of the ITRS, so the ERM chapter will not cover these materials and processes. Emerging lithographic materials include novel molecules, macromoloecules, and mechanisms that exhibit the potential to enable ultimate feature patterning with resist, or self assembled technologies. FEP materials include ERM required for future device technologies including technologies to place dopants in predetermined locations (deterministic doping) as well as novel materials to support selective etch, deposition, and cleaning of future technologies. Interconnect materials include emerging materials for extending Cu interconnects (novel ultrathin barriers), novel low resistance sub-20 nm electrical contacts, interconnects, vias, and ultra-low κ inter level dielectrics (ILD). Assembly and Packaging materials include novel materials to enable reliable electrical and thermal interconnects, polymers with unique and potentially useful combinations of electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties, and ultra-high power density high speed capacitors.

This year’s ERM chapter includes the following material families: III-V and Ge materials, low dimensional materials, macromolecules, self assembly mechanisms and self-assembled materials, spin materials, interfaces, complex metal oxides, and heterointerfaces. Many of these materials exhibit potential to address projected requirements in multiple application areas. Table ERM2 in the Introduction section maps families of ERMs to potential applications identified by the above Focus ITWGs. Future editions of this chapter also will comprehend and evolve projected ERM requirements for targeted functional diversification related applications.

Difficult Challenges

The Difficult Challenges for Emerging Research Materials is summarized in Table ERM1. Perhaps ERM’s most difficult challenge is to deliver material options, with controlled and desired properties, in time to impact insertion decisions. These material options must demonstrate the potential to enable high density emerging research devices, lithographic technologies, interconnect fabrication and operation at the nanometer scale, and packaging options. This challenge, to improve the control of material properties for nanometer (nm) scale applications, requires collaboration and coordination within the research community. Accelerated synthesis, metrology, and modeling initiatives are needed to enhance targeted material-by-design capabilities and enable viable emerging material technologies. Improved metrology and modeling tools also are needed to guide the evolution of robust synthetic methods for these emerging nanomaterials. The success of many ERMs depend on robust synthetic methods that yield useful nanostructures, with the required control of composition, morphology, an integrated set of application specific properties, and compatibility with manufacturable technologies.

To achieve high density devices and interconnects, ERMs must assemble in precise locations, with controlled directions, dimensions, and compositions. Another critical ERM factor for improving emerging device, interconnect, and package technologies is the ability to characterize and control embedded interface properties. As features approach the nanometer scale, fundamental thermodynamic stability considerations and fluctuations may limit the ability to fabricate nanomaterials with tight dimensional distributions and controlled useful material properties. For novel nanometer scale materials emerging within the research environment, methodologies and data also must be developed that enable the hierarchical assessment of the potential environment, safety, and health impact of new nanomaterials and nanostructures.

The difficult challenges listed in Table ERM1 may limit the progress of the emerging research materials considered in this chapter. Significant methodology development is needed that enables material optimization and projected performance analysis in different device structures and potential application environments. Hence, the importance of significant collaboration between the synthesis, characterization, and modeling communities cannot be over stated. Material advances require an understanding of the interdependent relationships between synthetic conditions, the resulting composition and nanostructure, and their impact on the material’s functional performance. Thus, characterization methods must be sufficient to establish quantitative relationships between composition, structure, and functional properties. Furthermore, it must enable model validation and help to accelerate the design and optimization of the required materials properties. The need for validated models requires strong alignment between experimentalists and theorists when establishing a knowledge base to accelerate the development of ERM related models and potential applications.
