The claims in your patent only mention this stack to be deposited on a semiconductor substrate, not a metal electrode, if I am not mistaken? There is also an important difference: The Material in the ZAZ stack is crystallized. The Al2O3 interlayer is not used to prevent crystallization. There was only a very short time when amorphous HAH or ZAZ stacks were used. Elpida and Micron did this in their 70-100nm products. They switched to crystalline stacks later.

Cann't believe my multilayer (US Patent #6,407,435) is used in actual device now! A multilayer dielectric stack is provided which has alternating layers of a high-k material and an interposing material. The presence of the interposing material and the thinness of the high-k material layers reduces or eliminate effects of crystallization within the high-k material, even at relatively high annealing temperatures. The high-k dielectric layers are a metal oxide of preferably zirconium or hafnium. The interposing layers are preferably amorphous aluminum oxide, aluminum nitride, or silicon nitride. Because the layers reduce the effects of crystalline structures within individual layers, the overall tunneling current is reduced. Also provided are atomic layer deposition, sputtering, and evaporation as methods of depositing desired materials for forming the above-mentioned multilayer dielectric stack.

Samsung 20 nm DRAM patterning still cost-effective enough, it seems. http://itersnews.com/?p=437

With micron-elpida merger....world is down to just 3 DRAM players with 75% of the production in Korea. I suspect that might be the endpoint of consolidation and give Samsung an advantage in end devices.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
