Researchers To Share Insights Into Sub 10nm Chip Design

III-V layers as next generation channel materials
At the SEMICON West 2014 conference in San Francisco next week, the newly merged SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering/ SUNY Institute of Technology based in Albany, USA, will be detailing some of the research underway at its technology development centres including the use of �III-V compounds in next generation chip technology.

In his presentation 'Driving Transistor Technology Sub-10nm: Process and Equipment Direction' on the 9th July 2014,�Christopher Borst, associate professor of nanoengineering at Suny CNSE, will explain how in parallel with work developing Si nanowire devices on 300 mm wafers, CNSE researchers are evaluating III-V layers as channel materials for next generation devices.� CNSE has established an ecosystem for collaborative III-V work with industrial and research partner institutions. It is committed to developing modules for III-V gate stack, contact and source-drain engineering that are compliant with environmental guidelines while driving to device performance targets.�

Beyond III-V, CNSE is working closely with partners from academia, industry and federal research programs on 2D materials including the growth, device design, and integrated module development for these layers with a view to their �introduction into mainstream processing.� Initial successes have been made in graphene growth and transfer onto 300 mm wafer substrates for clean, repeatable processing through the CNSE development facility.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
