Design and automation of MEDUSA (Materials and Electronic Device Universal System Analyzer)
MetadataShow full item record
MEDUSA is divided into four different sections: a controlling batch file, a parameter selection routine (PARAMETER), an experimental running routine (RUNIT), and a data manipulation/plotting routine (GRAPHICS). MEDUSA conducts these eight experiments (capacitance and conductance versus time, voltage, current versus voltage, van der Pauw, and four-point resistivity) over a temperature range of 10-600K, with minimal operator interaction. The graphics routines, using elemental semiconductor equations, process the data, and plots high quality graphs suitable for publication. Device and material results are shown to substantiate the validity of this automated system.
