About this book

Strain Effect in Semiconductors: Theory and Device Applications presents the fundamentals and applications of strain in semiconductors and semiconductor devices that is relevant for strain-enhanced advanced CMOS technology and strain-based piezoresistive MEMS transducers. The book discusses relevant applications of strain while also focusing on the fundamental physics as they pertain to bulk, planar, and scaled nano-devices. Lead authors Yongke Sun, Scott Thompson and Toshikazu Nishida also:

  • Treat strain physics at both the qualitative overview level as well as provide detailed fundamentals
  • Explain strain physics relevant to logic devices as well as strain-based MEMS

This book is relevant to current strained Si logic technology, as well as for understanding the physics and scaling of future strain nano-scale devices. It is perfect for practicing device engineers at semiconductor manufacturers, as well as graduate students studying device physics at universities.
