In this study, board level solder joint reliability under temperature cycling (TC) condition is investigated for extreme large package with fan-out wafer level packaging (FOWLP) technology through finite element analysis (FEA) and solder joint life prediction. Both packages with RDL first and mold first approaches have been compared in terms of board level solder joint reliability. Critical solder joints are identified based on simulation results, which are locating at die area, especially for solder joints at die edges. Parametric studies using FEA analysis have been conducted to optimize package design and material selection. FEA simulation results show that package with RDL 1st has better solder joint TC fatigue life than mold 1st due to flexibility. In addition, comparison among FOWLP, flip-chip ball grid array (FCBGA), wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP) has been conducted. FOWLP has been proven to be one cost effective and reliable packaging technology. © 2016 IEEE.

In this paper, a differential vertical transition with through silicon vias (TSVs) in photonic integrated circuit die is presented. The vertical transition composes of TSVs providing connectivity between the die front side and back side, BEOLs and micro-bumps. No back side redistribution layer is required to keep the fabrication process simple with good electrical performance. The high frequency characteristic of the differential TSV structure is also studied to provide design guidelines for the differential vertical transition. The effects of TSV pitch, liner oxide thickness and TSV mismatch on the high frequency performance are demonstrated. The change in TSV pitch has impact on the differential mode insertion loss and differential mode impedance matching while the liner oxide thickness variation induces negligible effect. Moreover, the TSV mismatch on the differential to common mode conversion is also not critical. The proposed differential transition design acquires simulated differential mode insertion loss of better than 0.75 dB up to 50GHz and simulated differential mode return loss of greater than 14 dB from DC to 50 GHz. © 2016 IEEE.

Semiconductor nanostructures that can effectively serve as light-responsive photocatalysts have been of considerable interest over the past decade. This is because their use in light-induced photocatalysis can potentially address some of the most serious environmental and energy-related concerns facing the world today. One important application is photocatalytic hydrogen production from water under solar radiation. It is regarded as a clean and sustainable approach to hydrogen fuel generation because it makes use of renewable resources (i.e., sunlight and water), does not involve fossil fuel consumption, and does not result in environmental pollution or greenhouse gas emission. Another notable application is the photocatalytic degradation of nonbiodegradable dyes, which offers an effective way of ridding industrial wastewater of toxic organic pollutants prior to its release into the environment. Metal oxide semiconductors (e.g., TiO2) are the most widely studied class of semiconductor photocatalysts. Their nanostructured forms have been reported to efficiently generate hydrogen from water and effectively degrade organic dyes under ultraviolet-light irradiation. However, the wide band gap characteristic of most metal oxides precludes absorption of light in the visible region, which makes up a considerable portion of the solar radiation spectrum. Meanwhile, nanostructures of cadmium chalcogenide semiconductors (e.g., CdS), with their relatively narrow band gap that can be easily adjusted through size control and alloying, have displayed immense potential as visible-light-responsive photocatalysts, but the intrinsic toxicity of cadmium poses potential risks to human health and the environment.In developing new nanostructured semiconductors for light-driven photocatalysis, it is important to choose a semiconducting material that has a high absorption coefficient over a wide spectral range and is safe for use in real-world settings. Among the most promising candidates are the multinary chalcogenide semiconductors (MCSs), which include the ternary I-III-VI2 semiconductors (e.g., AgGaS2, CuInS2, and CuInSe2) and the quaternary I2-II-IV-VI4 semiconductors (e.g., Cu2ZnGeS4, Cu2ZnSnS4, and Ag2ZnSnS4). These inorganic compounds consist of environmentally benign elemental components, exhibit excellent light-harvesting properties, and possess band gap energies that are well-suited for solar photon absorption. Moreover, the band structures of these materials can be conveniently modified through alloying to boost their ability to harvest visible photons. In this Account, we provide a summary of recent research on the use of ternary I-III-VI2 and quaternary I2-II-IV-VI4 semiconductor nanostructures for light-induced photocatalytic applications, with focus on hydrogen production and organic dye degradation. We include a review of the solution-based methods that have been employed to prepare multinary chalcogenide semiconductor nanostructures of varying compositions, sizes, shapes, and crystal structures, which are factors that are known to have significant influence on the photocatalytic activity of semiconductor photocatalysts. The enhancement of photocatalytic performance through creation of hybrid nanoscale architectures is also presented. Lastly, views on the current challenges and future directions are discussed in the concluding section. (Figure Presented). © 2016 American Chemical Society.

An AlN electro-optic phase shifter with a parallel plate capacitor structure is fabricated on Si using the back-end complementary metaloxide-semiconductor technology, which is feasible for multilayer photonics integration. The modulation efficiency (Vπ·Lπ product) measured from the fabricated waveguide-ring resonators and Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI) modulators near the 1550-nm wavelength is ∼240 V·cm for the transverse electric (TE) mode and ∼320 V·cm for the transverse magnetic (TM) mode, from which the Pockels coefficient of the deposited AlN is deduced to be ∼1.0 pm/V for both TE and TM modes. The methods for further modulation efficiency improvement are addressed. © 2016 Optical Society of America.

Protein charge at various pH and isoelectric point (pI) values is important in understanding protein function. However, often only trace amounts of unknown proteins are available and pI measurements cannot be obtained using conventional methods. Here, we show a method based on the atomic force microscope (AFM) to determine pI using minute quantities of proteins. The protein of interest is immobilized on AFM colloidal probes and the adhesion force of the protein is measured against a positively and a negatively charged substrate made by layer-by-layer deposition of polyelectrolytes. From the AFM force–distance curves, pI values with an estimated accuracy of ±0.25 were obtained for bovine serum albumin, myoglobin, fibrinogen and ribonuclease A over a range of 4.7–9.8. Using this method, we show that the pI of the ‘footprint’ of the temporary adhesive proteins secreted by the barnacle cyprid larvae of Amphibalanus amphitrite is in the range 9.6–9.7. © 2016 Nature Publishing Group

We report the synthesis of the benzo[1,2-d:4,5-d′]bisthiazole-thieno[3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6-dione copolymer pBBTzTPD, a nitrogen-substituted version of the highly efficient organic photovoltaic donor copolymer benzo[1,2-d:4,5-d′]dithiophene-thieno[3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6-dione pBDTTPD. This polymer was achieved via a novel and facile synthesis of 2,6-diaminobenzo[1,2-d:4,5-d′]bisthiazoledione (1) using inexpensive and commercially available bromanilic acid and thiourea precursors in a one-pot two-step reaction. 1 can be easily converted to 2,6-dibromo-4,8-di(2-ethylhexyloxy)benzo[1,2-d:4,5-d′]bisthiazole 6, which can then be copolymerized with n-octylthieno[3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6-dione (TPD) using direct arylation polymerization. The pBBTzTPD copolymer was characterized and compared with pBDTTPD in terms of molecular and electronic structure. © 2016 American Chemical Society.
