Illinois Nano EP Seminar Series Spring 2010 - Lecture 7: Can a Semiconductor Operate as a Human Cell ?
12 Apr 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): J. P. Leburton
The ability to manipulate the enormous information resources contained in DNA molecules for applications in information technology is one of the new great scientific challenges at the cross road of biology, information science, physics and electrical engineering. In this talk, I will briefly review the technological evolution of the MOS transistor, which is the basic element of microelectronic systems, and address the "end of the road" scenario for silicon technology. I will discuss …

Jean-Pierre Leburton's research at the Beckman Institute deals with transport and optical processes in semiconductor nanostructures such as quantum wires and quantum dots that exhibit a high degree of quantization dependent on the semiconductor materials and geometrical confinement. This important property has far-reaching technological consequences as it creates new opportunities for making high performance electronic and photonic devices with non-conventional quantum mechanical principles of ...
