Course # 1 - Chemical Analysis with Microsensors and Microsystems
Instructors: D. J. Harrison - University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada & A. J. Ricco - ACLARA Biosensors, Hayward, California

Chemical/Biochemical Microsensors and microfluidic devices are the basis of microsystems with a growing global impact in environmental clean up and monitoring, health care and clinical diagnostics, industrial process control, automotive and industrial emissions monitoring, aeronautical and space systems, screening for contraband, and home and workplace safety monitoring. Using modern microfabrication techniques in combination with novel materials, microsensors and systems with a microfluidic component are realized with ever increasing sensitivity, selectivity, and reliability, complemented by diminishing cost, size, and power consumption. This course will begin with the fundamentals of chemical and biochemical analysis using microfabricated sensors and systems (about 40%), and be followed with a presentation of microfluidic device principles and examples (about 60%). Approaches to chemical discrimination range from separation-based identification of analytes, to selective materials, to sensor arrays and pattern recognition; recent trends in chemically sensitive interface materials are surveyed. Fundamentals presented include the thermodynamics and kinetics of chemical interactions, which have important implications for performance criteria such as reversibility, reliability, sensitivity, and speed. Basic principles are discussed for several microfabricated sensor platforms, including acoustic, optical and electrochemical. The importance of systems in providing stable, calibrated sensor performance will be illustrated by examining the role micromachining can play in the fabrication of miniaturized sensor systems. For liquid-phase sensors, fluidics plays a major role in both system design and performance. Recent advances in integrated microfluidics for biochemical applications in immunoassay for clinical diagnostics, DNA sequencing, and DNA diagnostics will be explored in detail. Practical aspects of designing, fabricating and instrumenting microfluidic devices will be considered. Future trends and prospects for microsensors and systems will be discussed. This course is not intended for experienced, practicing professionals with broad knowledge in chemical sensor/microsystems field. Much of the material will be geared towards graduate students, as well as professionals in other disciplines, who wish an overview of chemical sensors and microsystems.

Course # 2 - The Integration of Copper Metallization and Low k-Dielectrics for ULSI Interconnects, and Its Reliability
Instructors: H. S. Rathore - IBM Microelectronics, Hopewell Junction, NY & D. B. Nguyen - IBM Microelectronics, Hopewell Junction, NY

This course is an extensive overview for process development, manufacturing, assembly, test, quality and reliability engineers for semiconductor microelectronics. It will also be very useful to students, scientists, engineers and technologists working in the field of integrated circuits research and development. Due to low resistivity and high melting point of Copper metallization, it is being used for advanced interconnect for sub-micron high performance integrated circuits. In this course, we will cover the requirements for ideal interconnect for future products. Methods of depositing Copper interconnects, the role of diffusion barrier, and reliability data on Copper metallurgy will be covered. The key issues like Electromigration, Stress migration, corrosion, Interlevel Dielectric Ramp Test and Time Dependent Dielectric Breakdown in Copper metallization and the drift/diffusion of copper in dielectric will be presented in detail. The process integration issues of Copper with FEOL and BEOL will also be reviewed. The industry-wide effort in developing new materials and characterization methodologies that are leading to the use of new materials with lower dielectric constant than silicon dioxide for interlevel dielectric (ILD) applications will be reviewed. The issues in regard to integrating of low-k materials and copper metallization will be discussed and the reliability data for electromigration, stress migration, mechanical integrity and time dependent dielectric breakdown (TDDB) will be reviewed.

Course # 3 - Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer Batteries
Instructors: Samuel C. Levy - SCL Battery Consulting, Georgetown, TX, Bruno Scrosati - University of Rome, Italy & Tetsuya Osaka - Waseda University, Japan

This course will be presented in three parts: basic properties, industrial development and safety. Various aspects of lithium polymer science and of lithium ion technology will be reviewed. Topics to be covered include the latest developments in lithium polymer electrolytes, polymer electrolyte/lithium metal electrode interface characteristics and lithium polymer electrolyte battery R&D. The intercalation of lithium into carbonaceous and alternative anodes as well as in various transition metal oxide cathodes, the effect of various additives on the electrodes' capacity, and the effect of liquid and polymer electrolytes on the interfacial phenomena will also be discussed. The characteristics of various lithium ion chemistries will be compared and the performance of commercially available cells will be evaluated. The present trends in Japan, the United States and Europe in lithium polymer and lithium ion batteries will be reviewed. Safety issues will be also addressed.

Course # 4 - Plasma Processing for 180 nm Devices
Instructors: D. E. Ibbotson - Lucent Technologies, Orlando, FL & D. W. Hess - Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA

This course will emphasize the physics and chemistry of rf and microwave glow discharges as they pertain to the fabrication of 180 nm devices and integrated circuits. The course will address both the fundamentals of glow discharges and the processing issues faced by the need to fabricate 180 nm and sub-180 nm structures. Course attendees should have the background normally contained in a standard undergraduate program with a major in engineering, physics, or chemistry. The course will begin with a discussion of the physics and chemistry of plasmas used in microelectronic devices and integrated circuit applications. Characterization and diagnostics of these discharges by spectroscopic means and by Langmuir probes will be described briefly. The variety of reactor configurations available will be indicated, and the unique needs in the plasma-assisted processing of 180 nm geometries discussed. The primary emphasis in the course will be on etching, deposition, and film growth of specific materials useful in fine-line geometries. In particular, examples will be chosen from areas of silicon, silicon-based dielectric (SiO2, SiNxHy, SiOF), metal (Al, W, Cu, Silicide), and high and low dielectric constant materials etching, from photoresist stripping, and from dielectric (SiO2, SiNxHy, SiOF, polymer) and metal (W, Cu) deposition. In addition, radiation damage and particulate formation in plasmas will be described and methods of mitigation presented. Chemical and physical models that generate insight into control of etch rates and profiles, and of deposited film properties will be indicated.

Course # 5 - Simulation of Nanoscale Materials and Devices
Instructors: P. von Allmen - Motorola, Inc., Tempe, AZ & J.-P. Leburton - University of Illinois, Urabana, IL

This course is intended for chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and engineers with a strong interest in simulation techniques for nanostructures and nanoscale devices. The course will include a review of important concepts of the physics of confined electronic systems in one-, two-, and three-dimensions, and a description of new efficient and realistic approaches for large scale modeling of semiconductor materials and devices from first principles. Emphasis is placed on the density functional theory to simulate various material surfaces, interface roughness, doping fluctuations and randomness in electronic devices, etc. The course will also illustrate various applications of technological importance such as the hydrogen desorption from passivated silicon surfaces, the threshold voltage variation due to doping fluctuations in MOS devices, and advanced device concepts such as quantum dots and quantum wires. The course will be divided into two parts. Part I will cover advanced simulation techniques of materials. Part II will focus on the simulation of nanoscale devices.

After the film, you'll board a Navy operated launch for the trip to the Memorial. While waiting for your tour to begin, you may view the museum exhibits and displays along the shoreline or visit the bookstore where a wide range of materials on the Pearl Harbor attack may be purchased. Once on the Memorial, you will have quiet time to reflect on the attack and view the sunken remains of the ship. The white arch of the Memorial straddles the ship and protects a wall of marble. The wall lists the 1,177 crewmen killed on December 7, 1941 when Japanese Naval Forces bombed the ship. You'll take the launch back to shore and stop at the Visitor Center where you will have time for lunch on your own. The snack shop features pre-packaged sandwiches, chips, and canned drinks. A short walk will bring you to the USS Bowfin Memorial where you will catch a shuttle bus to Ford Island. Ford Island sits in the middle of Pearl Harbor and until 1998, was closed to the public and accessible only by Navy ferry boats. Today, a state-of-the-art drawbridge connects Ford to the main shore. This tiny island is home to the Battleship Missouri Memorial. Here, the "Mighty Mo" stands majestically at watch over her fallen sister ship, the USS Arizona. The pier is a mini-tour with exhibits, flags and memorabilia on display in front of the 887-foot battleship. A guide will take you onboard and point out the various machinery and weapons that are topside. You'll step into the ward room and get a sense of how 2,400 sailors lived together at sea. A video outlines the vessel's history. Explore three decks and look down at the site that immortalized Missouri's place in history: the Surrender Deck where World War II ended. The shuttle bus will take you back to the main shore where your tour driver will meet you and return you to the hotel. This tour includes exclusive transportation with a driver/guide, uniformed escort to accompany the group from start to finish, customized itinerary with maps and tour information, admission on Battleship Missouri, tax and gratuities. Suggested attire is casual wear with low-heeled, comfortable shoes. Brief tops and bathing suits must be covered if worn on the Memorial. Price: $41.00 per person in advance and $45.00 per person on-site.

Hawaiian History Lecture - 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM (Paradise Lounge, Rainbow Tower)

Spend one hour spanning the centuries and put Hawaii's history into perspective. You'll see what was happening in the islands, during significant points in U.S. and world history. The island's first settlers arrived in 150 AD. At that time, the land was a barren volcanic wasteland. The settlers brought everything they needed to survive. When the first white man arrived in 1778, not long after the birth of our country, Hawaii was a paradise. The land was lush, green and fruitful. The islanders had an intricate social system, complex agricultural methods and sophisticated navigational techniques. They were a highly intelligent and extremely social group. However, they wore very little clothing in the hot climate, slept in airy grass huts, and only took from the land what they needed. Contact with the Western world changed all that. Within 100 years, the islanders were speaking English, French, German and more. They lived in one of the world's wealthiest countries and their royals traveled the globe. The Hawaiians boasted clothing of silk and velvet and jewels that outshone their flowers. Their palace had electricity before the White House did! Hawaiian history is a fascinating subject and you'll take a walk through time! This is the perfect presentation to complement today's Honolulu City Tour which is a drive through time! Price: Complimentary for Nontechnical Registrants.

Honolulu City Tour - 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Honolulu is a city of many moods. Begin with the serenity of Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The meticulously landscaped acres and the Courts of the Missing are a tribute to our country's fallen heroes. The mood lightens as your guide points out colorful Chinatown storefronts, circa 1800s. You'll hear of the symbolism of the State Capitol's architecture and view the impressive Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on American soil. See other beautiful and historic sites including the Kawaiaha'o Church, the State Library, and the statue of King Kamehameha I. At 1:00 PM, you'll disembark at the Aloha Tower Marketplace where you will have time for lunch on your own and shopping. This spot is a cornucopia of bright shops and eateries flanking the historic Aloha Tower. The tower's clock and harbor traffic signals continue to be a landmark for the water traffic, just as it was in the heyday of the luxury transpacific liners. Today, the Aloha Tower is Hawaii's first festival marketplace. This is a unique place to shop, dine, recreate, congregate and celebrate. Featuring specialty retail shops, theme restaurants and an outdoor market bazaar. Here, you will have time for lunch on your own, where you can choose from a simple hot dog stand to a sit down meal at Gordon Biersch. If your shopping list is short, you may want to take a short walk along the waterfront. With a nominal admission, you can visit the Hawaii Maritime Center for a lively exploration of Hawaii's unparalleled maritime heritage. Videotapes, hands-on displays, three-dimensional figures, and an audio tour trace 2,000 years of nautical history from the first Polynesians to present day. A reassembled humpback whale skeleton, one of just two in the world, is the centerpiece of the center's interior. Outside are the much-heralded vessels, Hokule'a and the Falls of Clyde. Your escort will be waiting for you at the bus. It will depart from the Aloha Tower Marketplace at 2:00 PM and make a stop at Hilo Hatties. If you wish to stay on at the Aloha Tower Marketplace, you can return on a complimentary Marketplace trolley. For those continuing to Hilo Hatties, this Fashion Center is classified as Hawaii's largest shopping attraction in the State, with over 1.2 million visitors shopping at their five Hawaiian stores on O'ahu, Maui, Kaua'i and in Kona and Hilo on the Big Island. Upon entering Hilo Hattie's customers experience a complimentary shell lei greeting and free refreshments. Once within, the fun Hawaiian shopping experience really begins! Shoppers enjoy a vast variety of Hawaiian activities including food and beverage tastings, Hawaiian music, sarong tying demonstrations and more. Your tour driver will stop to let any shoppers disembark before returning to the hotel. Shoppers at Hilo Hatties can return to the hotel on the fashion center's complimentary shuttles. This tour includes exclusive transportation with a driver/guide, uniformed escort, customized itinerary with maps and tour information, shuttle coupons for Aloha Tower Marketplace and Hilo Hatties, tax and gratuities. Price: $28.00 per person in advance and $33.00 per person on-site.

Hula Class - 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM (Paradise Lounge, Rainbow Tower)

Put on your most comfortable leisure wear and be ready to kick off your shoes! You are going swing your hips this morning! Hula is the art of Hawaiian dance. In the islands, this art is also a form of exercise. Muscles are gently lengthened and strengthened as you sway to the music. The basic movements are easy to learn and in just one session, you'll master a complete hula that you can perform for your family and friends back home! This class is the perfect presentation to complement today's Polynesian Cultural Center tour. At the center, you'll see islanders from around the Pacific perform their various forms of the hula. Price: Complimentary for Nontechnical Registrants.

Polynesian Cultural Center Tour - 11:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Your journey to the Polynesian Cultural Center is a tour in itself. The one hour drive will take you into the lush Ko'olau Mountains and down to sea level on the island's Windward side. Green valleys tumble into crystal blue waters making the drive a pure delight for the senses. Once you reach Laie on the island's north tip, your escort will give you a short briefing on where to meet at the end of the tour. Then, you're on your own! You'll arrive at the Center around 12:30 PM. The snack shop is at the entrance and you may want to lunch there on burgers or hot dogs before you begin your trek. If not, snack carts can be found throughout the grounds for iced drinks, ice cream, and fresh fruits. The 42-acre, open-air Polynesian Cultural Center casts you in the role of explorer on a whirlwind tour of the Pacific. The people you meet are real Pacific Islanders. You'll navigate a living map of Polynesia, visiting seven Polynesian nations, Tahiti, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, the Marquesas, Samoa, and Hawaii. Each village is a living museum. The architecture is authentic, down to the type of wood used and the means of securing one beam to another. Likewise, the arts, crafts, dances, songs, musical instruments, food, and costumes are exact ethnic reproductions. The Canoe Show tells the legends of the seafaring Polynesians. The dancers perform for you from their canoes while spectators line the riverbanks as it winds its way through the center. Real Polynesians with real culture. This is what makes Hawaii unique. This is what you were expecting from our island paradise. At 3:30, you'll meet your escort at the designated location and board the bus for the scenic drive back to the hotel. This Electrochemical Society tour includes exclusive transportation with a driver/guide, uniformed escort, customized itinerary with maps and tour information, general admission to the Center, tax and gratuities.
