On-Chip Isotropic Microchannels for Cooling Three Dimensional Microprocessors
(Virginia Tech, 2009-12-04)
This thesis reports the fabrication of three dimensionally independent on-chip microchannels using a CMOS-compatible single mask deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) process for cooling 3D ICs. Three dimensionally independent ...
Fabrication of Three-Dimensionally Independent Microchannels Using a Single Mask Aimed at On-Chip Microprocessor Cooling
(Virginia Tech, 2007-11-28)
A novel fabrication process is presented which allows for three-dimensionally independent features to be etched in silicon using SF6 gas in a deep reactive ion etcher (DRIE) after a single etch step. The mechanism allowing ...
The AFM Study of Ovarian Cell Structural Mechanics in the Progression of Cancer
(Virginia Tech, 2011-05-06)
According to the American Cancer Society, Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States, only exceeded by heart disease. Over the past decade, deciphering the complex structure of individual cells ...
