  • Number of hours

    • Lectures : 28h
    ECTS : 2
  • Officials : Adrian IONESCU (EPFL)

Goals

  • Comprehension of ultimate limitations of microelectronic devices: physical and technological
  • Understanding of the deep sub-micron (<70nm) innovative CMOS architectures and their limitations
  • Be able to qualitatively and quantitatively describe the functionality of few-electron devices (single electron transistor and memory, QCA, etc.)
  • Understand the functionality of discrete charge logic cells (SET and QCA)
  • Learn the new technological evolutions in nanoelectronics and their motivations

Content

Courses

  1. Ultimate CMOS technologies and their showstoppers
  2. Phenomena specific to deep submicron devices: non-stationary phenomena (velocity overshoot), ballistic transport, quantum effects, atomic scale parameter fluctuation (fluctuation of number of dopants, interface roughness).
  3. Innovative device architectures (Double-gate MOS transistor -DGMOS, dynamic threshold MOS transistor - DTMOS, gate-all-around transistor - GAA, vertical MOS transistors)
  4. Nano-scale and quantum devices: Single Electron Transistor (SET), quantum wires, few-electron memories, etc.
  5. Hybrid SET-FET circuits
  6. Charge-based circuit architectures: quantum dot cellular automata (QCA)
  7. Carbon Nanotubes: technology, devices and circuits
  8. Spintronics
