  • Atomic Layer Deposition of WO3-Doped In2O3 for Reliable and Scalable BEOL-Compatible Transistors. Nano letters Yoo, C., Hartanto, J., Saini, B., Tsai, W., Thampy, V., Niavol, S. S., Meng, A. C., McIntyre, P. C. 2024


    Tungsten oxide (WO3) doped indium oxide (IWO) field-effect transistors (FET), synthesized using atomic layer deposition (ALD) for three-dimensional integration and back-end-of-line (BEOL) compatibility, are demonstrated. Low-concentration (1∼4 W atom %) WO3-doping in In2O3 films is achieved by adjusting cycle ratios of the indium and tungsten precursors with the oxidant coreactant. Such doping suppresses oxygen deficiency from In2O2.5 to In2O3 stoichiometry with only 1 atom % W, allowing devices to turn off stably and enhancing threshold voltage stability. The ALD IWO FETs exhibit superior performance, including a low subthreshold slope of 67 mV/decade and negligible hysteresis. Strong tunability of the threshold voltage (Vth) is achieved through W concentration tuning, with 2 atom % IWO FETs showing an optimized Vth for enhancement-mode and a high drain current. ALD IWO FETs have remarkable stability under bias stress and nearly ideal performance extending to sub-100 nm channel lengths, making them promising candidates for high-performance monolithic 3D integrated devices.

  • Hybrid photoacoustic and fast super-resolution ultrasound imaging. Nature communications Zhao, S., Hartanto, J., Joseph, R., Wu, C., Zhao, Y., Chen, Y. 2023; 14 (1): 2191


    The combination of photoacoustic (PA) imaging and ultrasound localization microscopy (ULM) with microbubbles has great potential in various fields such as oncology, neuroscience, nephrology, and immunology. Here we developed an interleaved PA/fast ULM imaging technique that enables super-resolution vascular and physiological imaging in less than 2seconds per frame in vivo. By using sparsity-constrained (SC) optimization, we accelerated the frame rate of ULM up to 37 times with synthetic data and 28 times with in vivo data. This allows for the development of a 3D dual imaging sequence with a commonly used linear array imaging system, without the need for complicated motion correction. Using the dual imaging scheme, we demonstrated two in vivo scenarios challenging to image with either technique alone: the visualization of a dye-labeled mouse lymph node showing nearby microvasculature, and a mouse kidney microangiography with tissue oxygenation. This technique offers a powerful tool for mapping tissue physiological conditions and tracking the contrast agent biodistribution non-invasively.
