Radiation protection in integrated circuits

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6940111.

Reduced radiation damage to an IC feature is disclosed. At least a portion of the feature which is sensitive to radiation is covered by a radiation protection layer. The radiation protection layer protects the feature from being damaged to radiation during, for example, processing of the IC. In one embodiment, the radiation protection layer comprises a noble metal, oxides, alloys, or compounds thereof.
