Abstract:
CEA-Leti and Menapic, a French startup that enables physical characterization of thin films, today announced a joint-development program (JDP) to apply colored picosecond acoustics to materials analysis.

Leti and Menapic Launch Project to Extend Materials Analysis Uses Of Colored Picosecond Acoustics Technology

Grenoble and Lille, France | Posted on February 27th, 2013

Menapic's coloured picosecond acoustics (APiC) technology is an innovative tool to characterize the mechanical properties of thin films. It reproduces the principle of sonar in nano-scaled structures: a spectroscopic pulsed-laser source is used to generate acoustic waves in thin-film stacks. By analysing the propagation of the acoustic pulse in the stack, APiC enables the characterization of each layer. The JDP with Leti is designed to extend the use of this technology in the microelectronics industry and thin-materials analysis.

"Colored picosecond acoustics fits the mechanical characterization requirements that have accompanied the trends in scaling and increasing complexity of integrated electronics," said Patrick Emery, Menapic's president. "With Leti's high level of expertise in materials analysis and nanocharacterization, this program will position Menapic's APiC technology for on-site utilization."

Adding colored picosecond acoustics to Leti's advanced characterization techniques aligns with its technology roadmaps.

"This new equipment will complete the unique offer in terms of materials analysis available in the world-class nanocharacterization platform (PFNC) at MINATEC campus," said Narciso Gambacorti, Leti's nanocharacterization program manager. "Menapic's experience in materials analysis and colored picosecond acoustics technology, in particular, will accelerate the introduction of this technique at Leti."
