Phonon Interactions in Single-Dopant-Based Transistors: Temperature and Size Dependence
25 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Marc Bescond, Nicolas Cavassilas, Salim Berrada
IWCE 2015 presentation. in this work we investigate the dependence of electron-phonon scattering in single dopant-based nanowire transistor with respect to temperature and dimensions. we use a 3d real-space non-equilibrium green': ; s function (negf) approach where electron-phonon...
Inter-band Tunnel Transistors: Opportunities and Challenges
30 Oct 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Suman Datta
In this talk, we will review progress in Tunnel FETs and also analyze primary roadblocks in the path towards achieving steep switching performance in III-V HTFET.
Negative Capacitance Ferroelectric Transistors: A Promising Steep Slope Device Candidate?
In this talk, we will review progress in non-perovskite ALD based ferroelectric dielectrics which have strong implication for VLSI compatible negative capacitance Ferroelectric FETs.
The Deployment and Evolution of the First NEEDS- Certified Model — MIT Virtual Source Compact Model for Silicon Nanotransistors
04 Oct 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Shaloo Rakheja
In my talk, I will walk you through the fundamental steps involved in developing compact models, using the MVS model as an example. From the “lessons learned” in the process of MVS release in 2013 and its subsequent updates, I will provide a checklist of good practices to adopt while...
The Ultimate Scaling Limit - A Deterministic Single Atom Transistor
10 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
A talk by Dr. Gerhard Klimeck, Director of nanoHUB.org, Purdue University, Founder of NEMOco, LLC @ the University of Michigan.
RF Solid-State Vibrating Transistors
15 Feb 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Dana Weinstein
In this talk, I will discuss the Resonant Body Transistor (RBT), which can be integrated into a standard CMOS process. The first hybrid RF MEMS-CMOS resonators in Si at the transistor level of IBM’s SOI CMOS process, without any post-processing or packaging will be described. ...
