The Nano-MOSFET: A brief introduction

By Mark Lundstrom

Purdue University

Published on


MOSFET channel lengths are now well below 100nm, and getting smaller, but MOSFETs are still modeled and understood much as they were 30 years ago. Seminal work in the 1960’s laid the foundation for our understanding of the MOSFET, but traditional approaches are based on concepts that lose validity at the nanoscale. This talk is a brief introduction to a new approach that provides a sound conceptual foundation for understanding nanoscale MOSFETs.
