    The hardness of SiO2/Si structures grown in O2+TCA (1,1,1,-trichloroethane) to damages caused by ionizing radiation and hot-electron injection has been found to depend strongly on the amount of TCA introduced. Using minute amounts (much smaller than conventionally used) of TCA, we have been able...
