It is well known that high temperature storage can degrade moulding compounds for chip encapsulation to such an extent that the adhesions to surfaces like copper (lead frames) or polyimide (chip coating) decreases drastically causing [...]
This paper reports a new packaging method for a wide range of MEMS for application on both the wafer and device scale. We show a complete set of experimental and modeling results for the application [...]
When the silicon is not strongly absorbing in the near infrared a back side textured surface works in conjunction with a totally internally reflecting front side surface to best increase the absorption of near infrared [...]

Bio-nano-process (BNP) has been proposed as promising bottom-up process. Recently, there is large interest in application of BNP to memory devices such as resistive random access memory (ReRAM). According to the proposed resistive switching mechanisms, [...]
In this work we present Cadence simulation of 3-bit Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) based on compact 3-QDFET comparators, using 32nm design rules with BSIM 3.2.0 and BSIM 3.2.4 models . In addition, we present the precise [...]
In this work, the intrinsic device parameter variability including the metal gate workfunction fluctuation (WKF), the process variation effect (PVE), and the random dopant fluctuation (RDF) in 16-nm-gate n-type MOSFETs (NMOS) and p-type MOSFETs (PMOS) [...]
We model the Si quantum dots (QDs) embedded into the SiO2 substrate. Single sub-band effective mass approach is used to calculate energy levels of electrons and heavy holes. For weak confinement regime (QD size D [...]
In this study we analyze the precedent AND/OR plane cell of a programmable logic array (PLA) based on the quantum-dot cellular automata (QCA), then propose a modified layout that has better defect tolerance. We analyzed [...]
Most of the remarkable transport properties of graphene have to do with its particular band structure at low energies: the undoped system has a finite number of Fermi points, placed at the corner of the [...]
In this work, within a fully atomistic framework, we investigate the electronic structure of wurtzite InN quantum dots self-assembled on GaN substrates. The main objectives are two-fold: (1) to explore the origin, nature and the [...]

The integration of Si nanowire (Si NW) materials with low-temperature plastic substrates can enhance the performance of low-cost flexible electronics. We report the properties of Si NW field-effect transistors (FETs) fabricated with various contact metals [...]
We investigate the role of self-heating effects on the electrical characteristics of a silicon nanowire transistor using a 3-D Monte Carlo device simulator that includes self-consistent solution of the energy balance equations for both acoustic [...]

We will present a breakthrough in the stability of the simplest type of molecular electroluminescent devices, light-emitting electrochemical cells (LEECs). The main drawback of these molecular devices limiting their practical use is their short lifetimes [...]
In this study, we investigated the properties of Si-NPs after surface etching, surface re-oxidation and surface functionalization processes. Surface etching of as-synthesized Si-NPs with hydrofluoric acid causes a blue shift compared to their initial emission [...]

The simulation results of this study have shown that the device with heavier source doping and shorter effective channel length lead to interesting device performance of TFETs. Such characteristic could be considered for device structure [...]
Analysis of effect of temperature in the range (280k-300k) and radiation (X-rays and γ rays) on the AlGaInP based laser at 665nm emission wavelength has been carried out. Before and after irradiation, current-voltage (I-V), light-current [...]
A principle of semiconductor nanophotocatalysis – a new trend in photochemistry deals with the photocatalytic redox-reactions with the participation of semiconductor nanoparticles. The origin of various size-dependent explanations in the semiconductor photocatalysis are spot light [...]
Due to many random factors from thermal fluctuations to wave interference, computation perfection in nanoICs is hard to achieve. Defects and faults arise from noise susceptibility of nanoICs which leads to unreliable results. A probabilistic [...]
By the time CMOS reaches its physical scaling limits in the next several years, computing will have very likely evolved to meet the demands imposed with increases in application complexity and the processing of enormous [...]
