Abstract:

During the period 1 January 1991 to 31 December 1992, research supported by the Office of Naval Research under Grant Number N00014-91-J-1505 was directed at studying the phenomena of correlation and crosstalk in future ULSI interconnects. As described in the body of this report the coupling phenomena include 1 line-line coupling, 2 dot-dot coupling, and 3 line- dot coupling. We have also addressed the photovoltaic effect, which leads to an induced voltage in a line due to electromagnetic radiation which may be caused by neighboring lines. We also discuss related issues of the fabrication and design of quantum wire and dot structures.
