Nanoelectronics and Semiconductor Devices
With miniaturization of conventional electronics devices having reached the nanometer scale, nanoelectronics is an undeniable reality in today’s applications. Understanding all of the implications of “nano” when it comes to materials, devices and circuit aspects however is not a given at all. In particular, utilizing novel – often quantum mechanical and spin – aspects of the nano-realm for electronics applications is an area that is still in its infancies. BNC researchers are exploring nanoelectronics aspects from a variety of different angles. The goal is to utilize “nano” through the study of nano-materials, nano-devices and nano-circuits to achieve improved or previously unattainable performance specs for various electronic applications. Research areas range from spintronics and 2D materials, atomic layer deposition for high performance devices, to silicon carbide and GaN power devices.
