Description: Heat-treatment and thermal annealing are very common processing steps which have been employed during semiconductor manufacturing right from the beginning of integrated circuit technology. In order to minimize undesired diffusion, and other thermal budget-dependent effects, the trend has been to reduce the annealing time sharply by switching from standard furnace batch-processing (involving several hours or even days), to rapid thermal processing involving soaking times of just a few seconds. This transition from thermal equilibrium, to highly non-equilibrium, processing was very challenging and is still a field ripe for further development.

This collection addresses specific topics within the field of stress measurement in solids using neutrons, X-rays and synchrotron radiation. Particular attention is paid to multidisciplinary approaches involving an understanding of the measured stress field and the implications of the stress field for the behaviour of materials and components.
