ELECTRON DEVICES – World of Nanoelectronics: 75th Year of Transistor

June 1, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

“ELECTRON DEVICES – World of Nanoelectronics: 75th Year of Transistor”

An IEEE Electron Devices Society Distinguished Lecture

Date:           01 Jun 2022

Time:          11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Presenter:   Prof. Durga Misra, New Jersey Institute of Technology


Electron devices and materials has reached a crossroad with Moore’s law. While scaling (More Moore) will continue nanoelectronics device research will face many challenges and issues. This year being the 75th Year of Transistor the talk will discuss how the transistor has been transformed from a planar device to a three-dimensional device, FinFET. We will also talk about its reliability issues like Self-Heating. Integration of new channel materials like germanium, gate stack formation and scaling of memory devices continue to be part of active research. The research focus of beyond scaling (More than Moore) involves new devices and materials. Additionally, current trends in Internet of Things (IoT) require the convergence of Nanoelectronics, Nanotechnology, Communication Technology, and Information Technology. Integrated sensor systems monitoring environment, health care, water quality, vehicle traffic, smart cities are becoming the norm. Furthermore, nanoelectronics devices with extremely low power consumption like ReRAM allows a set of next generation devices for artificial intelligence hardware and neuromorphic applications. It is, therefore, important to get exposed to the current trends in circuit design architectures, device structures and fabrication, device and circuit relationship and design, reliability of new devices and processes.

This event will be held in person, at SFU Burnaby,  ASB 10900.  However there will also be a remote connection via Zoom.
