An exploratory symposium on electron devices

Feb 6-7, 2012

UCSB

Sponsored by NSF National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network

Guided by critical system and circuit requirements, this symposium explored candidate devices, associated materials, and process technologies for future generations of electron devices. This workshop addressed the problems and difficulties when working with:

  • future digital systems (VLSI) as these migrate to few-nm device dimensions
  • wireless communications systems as these migrate towards THz frequencies

Each session ended with a brief discussion identifying primary obstacles. Each day concluded an interactive discussion on the best approaches to address these obstacle

The talks from this symposium are hosted at the USCB site and are available here.
