  • Patent number: 10381372
    Abstract: Void formation in tungsten lines in a three-dimensional memory device can be prevented by providing polycrystalline aluminum oxide liners in portions of lateral recesses that are laterally spaced from backside trenches by a distance grater than a predefined lateral offset distance. Tungsten nucleates on the polycrystalline aluminum oxide liners prior to nucleating on a metallic liner layer. Thus, tungsten layers can be deposited from the center portion of each backside recess, and the growth of tungsten can proceed toward the backside trenches. By forming the tungsten layers without voids, structural integrity of the three-dimensional memory device can be enhanced.

  • Publication number: 20190204626
    Abstract: A Fourier transform is performed on a first waveform function in a frequency domain, and a second waveform function in a time domain including a temporal intensity waveform function and a temporal phase waveform function is generated. A replacement of the temporal intensity waveform function based on a desired waveform is performed for the second waveform function. The second waveform function is modified so as to bring a spectrogram of the second waveform function close to a target spectrogram generated in advance in accordance with a desired wavelength band. An inverse Fourier transform is performed on the modified second waveform function, and a third waveform function in the frequency domain is generated. Data is generated on the basis of an intensity spectrum function or a phase spectrum function of the third waveform function.
