For the twenty first century, the often-quoted quotation ‘past is prologue’ reads the opposite direction round: the worldwide current lacks a ancient narrative for the worldwide previous. Focussing on a transcultural heritage, this publication questions the territoriality of ancient thoughts and gives a story, which goals to beat cultural essentialism by way of focussing on crossing borders of every kind.

Res. Soc. Proc. 546, Pittsburgh, PA, 1999), pp. 69–74. 1 Introduction Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) is a triumph of twenty-first centuries and revolutionized the semiconductor industry by combining the microelectronics with micromachining technology. Though the term ‘mechanical’ is associated with MEMS, but in true sense, micromachined devices should not contain mechanical part always.
The gas may be a source gas or a carrier gas. For Si3N4 deposition, NH3 or H2O is the source gas and H2 is the carrier gas. • Once reactant gases are flown, then adsorption or chemisorption occurs on the substrate surface. • Heterogeneous reaction catalysed by the substrate surface. • Desorption of gaseous by-product that moves away from the substrate surface. 2 Plasma CVD Plasma-enhanced CVD (PECVD) is a special technique of CVD process where glow-discharge plasma persists in a reaction chamber.
Metal contamination on the surface can penetrate into the silicon bulk and can act as recombination centres for charge carriers. If this contamination precipitates at silicon/oxide interface or in the critical areas of the device, it can be problematic, because they affect diffusion profiles via their effect on crystal defects. Moreover, if metal contaminants get separated into the corresponding oxide during oxidation, they can prevent, retard or degrade oxide film growth and result in poor-quality oxides.
