Theoretical and experimental studies of the single-event effects induced by atmospheric muons on numerical technologies of nanometric scales

Abstract : This study concerns the domain of the microelectronics. It consists in the study of the impact of the 3D morphology of the energy deposit on the Single Event Eect (SEE) modeling, induced by atmospheric muons. Over a first phase, the approach has consisted in the modeling of the energy deposit induced by protons innanometricvolumes.For that purpose the use of the Monte Carlo code GEANT4 has allowed to simulate and stock in a database the tracks characteristics of the energy deposit induced by protons. Once the approach validated for the protons, simulations of the energy deposit induced by muons have been realized. A CCD camera has been used in order to measure the radiative atmospheric environment and to constrain the modeling of the energy deposit induced by muons.This study highlights and quantify the contribution of the radial distribution of the energy deposit incuced by protons in nanometric volumes for the SEE prediction. On the other hand, the study shows that the contribution of the radial distribution of the energy deposit induced by muons in nanometric volumes has a negligeable impact on the SEE modeling. It will be interesting to realize measurements of the energy deposit induced by muons in nanometric technologies under particle accelerator. This will allow to bring experimental data still nonexistant necessary to the developpment of new physical models more accurate on the modeling of the energy deposit induced by muons.
