Two-dimensional materials are flexible, transparent, compatible with living systems, and can enable new devices and physics based on their unique properties. One unique property is the ability of 2D crystals a single atom thick to undergo massive amounts of strain without failure. Since strain also drastically modifies the band structure leading to large changes in transport and optical properties, strain engineering of 2D crystals has the potential to create new devices, explore transport in pseudo-magnetic fields, and tune tunneling or excitonic effects.  ...

This course examines the device physics of advanced transistors and the process, device, circuit, and systems considerations that enter into the development of new integrated circuit technologies. The course consists of three parts. Part 1 treats silicon MOS and MOSFET fundamentals as well as second order effects such as gate leakage and quantum mechanical effects. Short channel effects, device scaling, and fabrication processes and reliability are the subject of Part 2. In Part …

Simulations provide new insight into emerging nanoelectronic device

Researchers have used an advanced model to simulate in unprecedented detail the workings of "resistance-switching cells" that might replace conventional memory for electronics applications, with the potential to bring faster and higher capacity computer memory while consuming less energy.

The objective of this exercise is to start with the simple Kronig-Penney model and understand formations of bands and gaps in the dispersion relation that describes the motion of carriers in 1D periodic potentials. The second exercise examines the behavior of the bands at the Brillouin zone boundaries. Finally, a simplified tight-binding approach for 1D lattice has to be derived as part of the third exercise..

Computer simulation is now an essential tool for the research and development of semiconductor processes and devices, but to use a simulation tool intelligently, one must know what\‘s \“under the hood.\” This talk is a tutorial introduction designed for someone using semiconductor device simulation for the first time. After reviewing the semiconductor equations, I will briefly describe how one solves them \“exactly\” on a computer. I\‘ll then discuss an example device simulation program and conclude with some thoughts about how to effectively use simulation in practice.

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.
