Progress in technology has brought microelectronics to the nanoscale, but nanoelectronics is not yet a well-defined engineering discipline with a coherent, experimentally verified, theoretical framework. The NCN has a vision for a new, 'bottom-up' approach to electronics, which involves: understanding electronic conduction at the atomistic level; formulating new simulation techniques; developing a new generation of software tools; and bringing this new understanding and perspective into the classroom. We address problems in atomistic phenomena, quantum transport, percolative transport in inhomogeneous media, reliability, and the connection of nanoelectronics to new problems such as biology, medicine, and energy. We work closely with experimentalists to understand nanoscale phenomena and to explore new device concepts. In the course of this work, we produce open source software tools and educational resources that we share with the community through the nanoHUB.
This page is a starting point for nanoHUB users interested in nanoelectronics. It lists key resources developed by the NCN Nanoelectronics team. The nanoHUB contains many more resources for nanoelectronics, and they can be located with the nanoHUB search function. To find all nanoelectronics resources, search for 'nanoelectronics.' To find those contributed by the NCN nanoelectronics team, search for 'NCNnanoelectronics.' More information on Nanoelectronics can be found here.

25 Linearity by Synthesis: An Intrinsically Linear AlGaN/GaN-on-Si Transistor with OIP3/(F-1)PDC of 10.1 at 30 GHz
21 Sep 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Woojin Choi, Venkatesh Balasubramanian, Peter M. Asbeck, Shadi Dayeh
The concept of an intrinsically synthesizable linear device is demonstrated. It was implemented by changing only the device layout; additional performance gains can be attained by further materials engineering.
39 Thermal Engineering of Volatile Switching in PrMnO3 RRAM: Non-Linearity in DC IV Characteristics and Transient Switching Speed
21 Sep 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Jayatika Sakhuja, Sandip Lashkare, Vivek Saraswat, Udayan Ganguly
This study is the first-time analysis of heating and cooling timescales together demonstrating voltage as well as frequency scaling for different voltage regimes w.r.t. different device stacks. Thus, an electro-thermal speed engineering study is critical for RRAM devices to model elements of...
A3 Crystalline Calcium Fluoride: A Record-Thin Insulator for Nanoscale 2D Electronics
18 Sep 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Yury Yuryevich Illarionov, A.G. Banshchikov, Theresia Knobloch, D.K. Polyushkin, S. Wachter, V.V. Fedorov, M. Stöger-Pollach, M.I. Vexler, N.S. Sokolov, T. Grasser
We fabricated high-quality crystalline 1−2nm CaF2 films and successfully used them for MoS2 FETs with record-thin gate insulators. For the first time we demonstrated MoS2 FETs with simultaneously sub-1nm EOT insulators and sub-100nm channel length and found that these devices can exhibit...

18 Sep 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Shimeng Yu, Panni Wang
Doped HfO2 based ferroelectric field-effect transistors (FeFETs) are being actively explored as emerging nonvolatile memory devices with the potential for compute-in-memory (CIM) paradigm. In this work, we explored the feasibility of array-level operations of FeFET in the context of in-situ...
12 The Influence of the Gate Trench Orientation to the crystal Plane on the Conduction Properties of Vertical GaN MISFETs for Laser Driving Applications
18 Sep 2020 | | Contributor(s):: E. Bahat Treidel, O. Hilt, H. Christopher, A. Klehr, A. Ginolas, A. Liero, J. Würfl
In this work the development of vertical GaN MISFET technology is focused on pulsed laser driving applications with maximum voltages < 100 V (Fig. 1). Drivers for pulsed lasers are required to deliver very high currents up to 250 A in very short pulse lengths of 3 ns to 10 ns .
Bandgap Manipulation of Armchair Graphene nanoribbon
