TitleChou laboratory notebook (Ion Implantation Experiments I)
DescriptionThis is Volume I in a series of notebooks recording experiments using the ion implantation equipment that was set up in the Chou (Ion Implantation Setup) book. As a result of this work, ion implantation replaced high-temperature diffusion as a means of introducing desired impurities into silicon wafers with improved control of device characteristics. The objectives of the experiments are noted in the front of the book on a page dated 1970-08-20. The remainder of the book is largely devoted to recording the results the work.
Biographical NotesSunlin Chou was born in Singapore and received B.S., M.S., and E.E. degrees from MIT in 1966, 1967, and 1968 respectively, all in electrical engineering. He joined Fairchild in 1968 where he worked on the development of a lateral PNP transistor and was involved in the set-up and operation of an ion implantation system while also earning a Ph.D. from Stanford University (1971). He moved to Intel Corporation in 1971, and worked on device modeling, memory design, and process development projects, before assuming responsibility for Intel’s DRAM process technology development effort. He was senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Technology and Manufacturing Group when he retired in 2005. He was awarded the IEEE Robert Noyce Award in 2013.
