Viscoelastic Modeling of Titanium Silicidation

  • Stephen Cea

This paper describes titanium silicidation modeling using the process simulator FLOOPS. Erpimental work shows that viscoelastic models are required to fit the observed behavior. The capability to simulate a wide range of silicide examples are shown, but more experimental evidence is needed to calibrate the models.
