Microelectronics and Optoelectronics
Proceedings of the 25th Annual Symposium of Connecticut Microelectronics and Optoelectronics Consortium (CMOC 2016)The 25th Annual Symposium of Connecticut Microelectronics and Optoelectronics Consortium (CMOC 2016)
This book features the selected articles from the 25th annual symposiums Connecticut Microelectronics and Optoelectronics Consortium (CMOC), that focus on micro/nano-electronics and optoelectronics/Nano-photonics, to cover not only the technologies, but also the applications ranging from biosensors/nano-biosystems, to cyber security.
Enabling materials research involving growth and characterization of novel devices such as multi-bit nonvolatile random access memory with fast erase, high performance circuits, and their potential applications in developing new high-speed systems. Other articles focus on emerging nanoelectronic devices including topological insulators, spatial wavefunction switching (SWS) FETs as compact high-speed 2-bit SRAM circuits, quantum dot channel (QDC) FETs. Fundamental work on critical layer thickness in ZnSe/GaAs and other material systems impacts electronic and photonic devise integrating mismatched layers are also reported. While another article investigates linearly graded GaAsP-GaAs system with emphasis on strain relaxation.
Based on these technologies, area of analyzes multiple junction solar cells using semiconductors with different energy gaps, as a possible application were also featured; Pixel characterization of protein-based retinal implant, as well as a low-power and low-data-rate (100 kbps) fully integrated CMOS impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) transmitter were investigated as a potential candidate for biomedical application. While other articles looked at carbon nanofibers/nanotubes for electrochemical sensing. In the area of cyber security, two articles present encrypted electron beam lithography fabricated nanostructures for authentication and nano-signatures for the identification of authentic electronic components.
In summary, papers presented in this volume involve various aspects of high performance materials and devices for implementing high-speed electronic systems.
