3D-IC’s by stacking and connecting dies of different functions with through-silicon via processes are emerging as an upcoming heterogeneous SOC enabler. Since connectivity between stacked layers may be limited by nearest-neighbor layers, the stagnation of [...]
This paper, for the first time, studies the random dopant fluctuation (RDF) in the 10-nm-gate multi-channel gate-all-around nanowire field-effect transistors (FETs). To characterize device’s physical and electrical characteristic fluctuation, a 3D statistically atomistic approach to [...]
In this presentation, a monolayer of silver nanoplate is introduced as an epitaxial template and doping source for vertically aligned p-type ZnO nanorods. Silver nanoplates were synthesized through room temperature polyol process and the monolayer [...]
Medical electronics, especially implanted devices, are operated in harsh and unstable operating conditions in which these systems must operate correctly. Medical electronics are usually powered using batteries and/or energy harvesters. This implies that they must [...]
Carbon in the form of nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene is the only known material that can replace copper in integrated circuits to carry the high current densities associated with advanced interconnects. Its implementation is however [...]
Owing to its unique electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties, graphene has sparked enormous scientific interest since its discovery in 2004. However, the absence of a bandgap limits its applications in electronic and optoelectronic fields. Theoretical [...]
Nanotechnology resulted in new communication and processing paradigms. While conventional communication, computing and processing are supported by nanoscaled digital systems, quantum-centric computing, communication and processing are emerged. This paper reports fundamental, applied and experimental multidisciplinary [...]
We study electron spectra and electron tunneling in double quantum systems: quantum wells (QWs), quantum dots (QDs) and quantum rings (QRs). We especially study the relation between their chaotic properties and tunneling. In particular we [...]
Non-volatile memories play a very important role in modern day electronics. In harsh environments such as space and weapons systems, radiation-hardness is an essential requirement. Radiation-hardening-by-design is an effective solution which is based on redundancy [...]
In our previous work we found out a highly in air stable technique, defect-less, and relatively high electron mobility for n-doping graphene nanomesh using PAG (an element of SU-8 resist compound). This work demonstrated the [...]
we take advantages of direct integration of Ni2Si/Si nanograss heterojunction array on a MOSFET's gate terminal, utilizing a CMOS compatible top-down technique, to realize a highly sensitive phototransistor. In the proposed technique, using a deep [...]
We demonstrate low-operating voltage, high mobility, and stable organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) using both non-polar and polar polymeric dielectrics such as poly(4-vinyl phenol) (PVP), poly methyl metacrylate (PMMA), and polyvinylidene fluoride-trifluoroethylene (PVDF-TrFe), dissolved in solvents [...]
There is a wide variety of printed large area flexible electronic devices and at the same time a number of different visions and estimates for this new emerging industry and market. But as every new [...]
In nano-metal sintering, the electrical resistivity of nano-metals is related to their structure. Electrical resistivity is affected by grain size and density. Larger grains and denser films yield lower electrical resistivity. This work investigated the [...]
In this article, electrically conducting coatings of poly(3, 4 – ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) were synthetized on textile substrates by the vapor phase polymerization (VPP) method, using water as solvent. The VPP method is considerably more sustainable [...]
Organic transistors hold the promise of enabling the field of flexible electronics. However, despite significant progress in the past, the performance and reliability of organic transistors has to be improved further to turn the dream [...]
In this article, a compact textile system produced with a single embroidery digital machine and high design and integration versatility is presented. Clothing integrating textile electrodes made by seamless knitting has been proposed to monitor [...]
The emergence of devices that combine elasticity with electronic or optoelectronic properties offers exciting new opportunities for applications, but brings significant materials challenges. We will report (1) an elastomeric transparent conductor as a radically new [...]
Estimates predict that within a few years, we will need trillions of sensors to match the global development of wireless communications and computation. Chemical and gas sensors are an integral part of this need for [...]
