A Tutorial Introduction to Negative-Capacitor Landau Transistors: Perspectives on the Road Ahead
04 Dec 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
In this talk, I use a simple graphical approach to demystify the device and explain why the experimental results are easy to misinterpret. Since the NC-FET is just a special case of a much broader class of phase-change devices and systems (e.g., transistors, memories, MEMS, logic-in-memory...
[Illinois] How to Break the "Fundamental" Limits of Nanobiosensing
07 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
As the future of Moore’s law of transistor scaling appears uncertain, electronics is being reinvented by broadening the focus to other areas including macroelectronics (electronics of large, possibly flexible and transparent displays), bioelectronics (e.g., nanobio sensors for genomics,...
Sequencing a Genome by a Torrent of Ions: How an Old pH-Meter Got Its Groove Back
11 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
The ability to read the book of life, written in the genome of an organism, has been one of the most exciting development of our time. The first version of human genome was announced circa 2000 and it took a decade of industrial-scale collaboration and billions of dollars of funding. Today, we do...
