IBM expands Euro future logic effort

Computing giant IBM has enlisted two additional European countries to support its hunt for a successor to today’s dominant silicon semiconductor technology.

The Polish and Bulgarian governments have signed on to collaborate on the nano-technological research agenda established by the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory.

In late May, IBM agreed to help Bulgaria set up a nanotechnology center that will conduct applied research on “advanced virtual substrates for compound semiconductors”. Although the center’s research specialties will not be confirmed until it is built in one to two years time, IBM’s post-silicon CMOS logic plans currently focus on onedimensional semiconductor nanowires.

Located in Sofia and Botevgrad, the center will include 500 m2 of cleanroom space that will be equipped according to the needs of the projects. Lithography, deposition, etching and characterization tools will provide the basic capabilities necessary for the kind of research that will be performed.

In the same week in May, IBM agreed that its research scientists would support nanotechnology research in Poland at the Wroclaw Research Center, European Institute of Technology Plus (WRC EIT+). IBM and WRC EIT+ are now discussing several collaborative projects, while IBM will also provide training and consulting services.

IBM’s Zurich operation is already acting in a pivotal role in the DUALLOGIC European III-V-silicon integration project.

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
