6 ANNA – Management and Networking Activities NA1: Management of the Consortium NA2: Establishment of analytical reference laboratories –status evaluation –golden labs (8 Partners with specialized expertise) –accreditation (e.g. ISO – laboratories) NA3: Formation of European joint analytical laboratory –integration –web interface (www.anna-i3.org) –user manual (for joint laboratory and transnational access) NA4: Standardization of samples and methodologies –standardization –matching –references
7 ANNA – Transnational Access More than 1000 days of European Community funded Transnational Access to 18 infrastructure (laboratories, clean room, metrology) at 8 locations Access to ANNA instrumentation and analytical services is either in person ("hands-on") or remotely by suitable (electronic) communications Potential users of the infrastructure are researchers or groups of researchers from small & medium enterprises, large scale industry, research centres, or universities Interested users apply for research Access by submitting a short project proposal Selection of user proposals is by "peer review" on the basis of the scientific/technical merit (innovation, scientific and technological relevance). Priority will be given to first-time users and to users in countries without a similar infrastructure Access is available from 2008 to 2010 –Note: Transnational Access means that users groups from the same country where the operator of the infrastructure is established are not eligible for access.

14 ANNA - JRA3: Tilted Sample Annular Dark Field Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (TSADF-STEM) Messa a punto di una tecnica ADF-STEM quantitativa per la determinazione dei profili di drogaggio in giunzioni ultra-sottili in Si. Modifica originale di una precedente tecnica dovuta a Pennycook et al. (1999). E stato necessario comprendere i meccanismi di contrasto operanti in ogni condizione sperimentale. Questo ha permesso di definire una procedura per filtrare/selezionare il segnale voluto. Nel caso dellAs in Si è stato possibile determinare la distribuzione del drogante alla superficie del campione dove falliscono tecniche spettroscopiche come il SIMS. La sensibilità della tecnica nel caso dellAs è ~ 1% mentre la precisione della procedura quantitativa è dellordine del 10%. The aim is to define methodologies able to give a more complete characterization of ultra shallow dopant distributions

20 JRA5 This activity aims at setting up a method to measure the mechanical stress in present and future generation devices by TEM-CBED. The results of this technique will be validated by comparison with electrical measurements of stress-sensitive devices and with the results of numerical calculations. X Y Z The procedure for TEM-CBED sample preparation by FIB was found NOT to be a trivial issue.
21 JRA5 - IMM A reliable sample preparation procedure was defined, using a low energy final finishing (5 KeV) during FIB milling. CBED measurements were validated by comparison with strain data obtained from process simulations and by measurements of samples with a known strain trend. The impact of mechanical strain on the electrical properties of devices was shown both in terms of mobility modifications and in terms of defect generation The possibility to measure the mechanical strain induced by layers doped with different impurities was demonstrated Pubblicazioni –A.
