Nanoelectronics: Devices and Materials

Bhat, N. (Navakanta) ; Shivashankar, S. A. ; Bhat, K. N.


The objective of this course is to present the state of the art in the areas of semiconductor device physics and materials technology to enable the Nanoelectronics. The fundamentals of classical CMOS technology will be discussed and the issue in scaling MOSFET in the sub-100nm regime will be elaborated. In this context the need for non classical transistors with new device structure and nano materials will be elucidated. The issues in realizing Germanium and compound semiconductor MOSFET will be presented. Extensive materials characterization techniques will also be discussed, which help in engineering high performance transistors.
