  • This course deals with the applications of nanoelectronics in a number of areas and it will give knowledge about how devices may be realized and modelled for applications both extending and beyond CMOS. For instance, the nanotechnology allows for an heterogeneous materials integration of transistors which may be used to reduce the power consumption in circuit applications and for programmable memories. The course will use knowledge in the areas of nanotechnology and circuit design (Modern electronics and High-speed Electonics). The use of nanowires and nanotubes will be discussed and different device technologies with potential to reduce the power consumption will be emphasized. Appliications within communication technology, radar, as well within the THz region will further be discussed. The course aims at providing a basis in how advanced materials science will generate new electronic applications.
  • Possibilities and challenges for the Si CMOS technology at and beyond the 20 nm node; FinFETs and NWFETs. Heterogeneous materials integration, High-k dielectrics, and ferroelectric materials. Tunneling devices and steep-slope transistors. Electronics based on III-V nanowires for high frequency applications (like 5G and THz) and neuromorphic applications.

    During the laborations, the students will use models for nanoelectronic devices and during the project simulate how these perform in simple circuits. The use of conventional tools that the engineer later will use professionally will be emphazised.The design project will result in a writen student article in IEEE format.
