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.


This lecture overviews and discusses the last trends in the technology and principles of nanoelectronic devices for more aggressive scaling, better performances, added functionalities and lower energy per function. The opportunities of these advances compared to industrial roadmaps are analized.

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
