Case Study
A researcher wants to investigate the effect of low-T plasma treatment on Si nanowires (NWs). Using Tyndall test devices fabricated on SiO2-Si wafer in Tyndall. First they carry out comprehensive electrical characterisation of the devices during visit to the facility. Plasma treatment is then performed at the user’s. The treated devices are then electrically characterised again. The results show how the plasma treatment diffuses doping impurity from surface to bulk of the silicon NWs at low temperature and decrease the contact resistivity between metal contact and Si NW.
