14 June 1988 Microcircuit Modification Using Focused Ion Beams
Author Affiliations +
Focused-ion-beam (FIB) microcircuit modification is a maturing technology which provides an accurate method of modifying the metal levels of an in-process or completed integrated circuit. New FIB processes are being developed which facilitate submicrometer conductor disconnects and conductor creation. We present a description of the key elements of an FIB system designed for this application and provide results of the machine's operation.
