241st ECS Meeting Topic Close-up: Solid-State Devices, Materials, and Sensors

Dolf Landheer Topic Close-up #11

Symposium D01: Solid-State Devices, Materials and Sensors: In Memory of Dolf Landheer

Extended Deadline for Submitting Abstracts:
December 17, 2021

Symposium focus: This symposium honors the memory of Dolf Landheer, who passed away peacefully on May 1, 2020, in Ottawa, Canada. A Society member for 20 years, Dr. Landheer was active in the ECS Dielectric Science and Technology Division and co-organized many symposia in the areas of solid state devices, materials, and sensors. Elected a Fellow of The Electrochemical Society in 2009, he served as division chair and member of the ECS Board of Directors from 2014-2016. He was also an Associate Editor of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society. In his memory, papers are invited in the following areas:

  • Semiconductor Devices: High Mobility Devices; High-k Gate Dielectrics that are used in advanced nanoelectronics devices and sensors;
  • Solid State Waveguide Lasers and Detectors: III-V (GaAs, InP, etc.), Si-Ge multilayers for optoelectronics application;
  • Volatile and Non-Volatile Memory: Resistive RAM; Ferroelectric RAM; Flash Memories where the dielectric plays an important role;
  • Sensors: Biosensors, Bioelectronics, and Biomedical Engineering;
  • Interfaces and Reliability: Semiconductor/Dielectric, Dielectric/ Dielectric, Dielectric/Metal Interfaces; Dielectric Wear-out, SILC; NBTI and PBTI; TDDB;
  • Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology: Nanotubes, Nanowires, Quantum Dots, Spintronics, Plasmonics.

An opening session is dedicated to Dr. Landheer’s contribution to science and technology, and specifically to ECS. Dr. Landheer’s son, Karl (a materials scientist), gives an invited talk about his research. More than eight invited speakers from academia, national laboratories, and industries have already confirmed their participation. Additional invited talks are forthcoming.
