To calculate an error metric between two 3d multi-components models, the facets of 3d components of the first 3d model are uniformly sampled. Between each sampling point in the first 3d model and the surface of the second 3d model, a point-to-surface error is calculated.

Multi-fin finfets with merged-fin source/drains and replacement gates


A semiconductor structure including semiconductor fins, a gate over a middle portion of the semiconductor fins, and faceted semiconductor regions outside of the gate separated from gaps may be formed. The semiconductor structure may be formed by forming fins on a semiconductor substrate where each fin has a pair of sidewalls aligned parallel to the length of the fin, growing dummy semiconductor regions on the sidewalls of the fins, forming a sacrificial gate that covers a center portion of the fins and the dummy semiconductor regions, removing portions of the dummy semiconductor regions not covered by the sacrificial gate, and growing faceted semiconductor regions on the sidewalls of the portions of the fins not covered by the sacrificial gate.

Faceted intrinsic epitaxial buffer layer for reducing short channel effects while maximizing channel stress levels


A faceted intrinsic buffer semiconductor material is deposited on sidewalls of a source trench and a drain trench by selective epitaxy. A facet adjoins each edge at which an outer sidewall of a gate spacer adjoins a sidewall of the source trench or the drain trench.

Fin field effect transistor with merged metal semiconductor alloy regions


Raised active regions having faceted semiconductor surfaces are formed on semiconductor fins by selective epitaxy such that the raised active regions are not merged among one another, but are proximal to one another by a distance less than a thickness of a metal semiconductor alloy region to be subsequently formed. A contiguous metal semiconductor alloy region is formed by depositing and reacting a metallic material with the semiconductor material of raised active regions.
