Courses

Micro and nanoelectronic devices

This lecture introduces the main principles, modeling and operation of semiconductor devices with main emphasis on major transistor concepts: bipolar, MOSFET (bulk, SOI, 3D) and new merging architectures (Tunnel FETs). Their main figuers of merit and the technological implementation are discussed.

Semiconductor devices II

Students will learn about understanding the fundamentals and applications of emerging nanoscale devices, materials and concepts. Remark: at least 5 students should be enrolled for the course to be given

Smart sensors for IoT

This lecture provides insights in the design and technologies of Internet-of-Things sensor nodes, with focus on low power technologies. The lectures alternate every two weeks between sensing technologies of various kinds (prof. Ionescu) and their integrated circuit readouts (prof. Enz).

Nanoscale MOSFETs and beyond CMOS devices

This course provides the trends in nanoelectronics for scaling, better performances and lower energy per function. It covers fundamental phenomena of nanoscale devices, beyond CMOS steep slope switches, emerging architectures, cryo electronics, non-volatile memories and energy efficient smart sensin

Wearables and implantables for personalized and preventive healthcare

This multidisciplinary course presents, from both engineering and medical perspectives, the state-of-the-art, applications and impact of wearable and implantable technologies, with focus on cardiovascular healthcare shift from intervention-based to personalized and preventive medical strategies.

Introduction to quantum science and technology

This course provides all students with a broad view of the diverse aspects of the field: quantum physics, communication, computation, simulation, quantum hardware technologies, quantum sensing and metrology. The course will be an overview of frontiers of the domain and taught by multiple instructors
