Title: Atomic Layer Deposition of Ferroelectric and Threshold Switching Materials for Next Generation Nonvolatile Memory

Abstract:

As the demand for faster, cheaper, lower power, and generally higher performance devices continues unabated toward the end of this decade and into the next, the integrated circuit industry is turning toward a diverse array of new functional materials. Non-volatile memory (NVM) in particular is driving the development of new non-linear, state-change elements such as ferroelectrics, resistive memory, and threshold switches. Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) is one of the few processes that delivers both the conformality and compositional control required for these materials. In this talk we discuss the recent developments of ALD ferroelectric HfO2 thin films as well as threshold switching selector materials for NVM applications.

Biography:

Dr. Karl Littau, Senior Principal Scientist at Intermolecular Inc., is a Physical Chemist with expertise in thin film deposition, ALD, CVD, surface and gas phase chemistry, and solid state physics. He has a BS in Chemistry from UC Berkeley and a PhD in Physical Chemistry from Stanford University. He has held positions at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Applied Materials, Inc., Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center, Stanford University, and is currently Senior Principal Scientist in the CTO organization at Intermolecular Inc. where Dr. Littau has been directing research and development of new Atomic Layer Deposition chemistries and new materials for advanced IC devices and emerging technologies.
