Topic Close-up #4

SYMPOSIUM C04: Pits & Pores 7: Nanomaterials – Fabrication Processes, Properties, and Applications

FOCUSED ON The symposium is focused on recent developments in nanostructured semiconductors, metals and nanocomposite systems. A more detailed understanding of etching and growth mechanisms, and the physical and chemical properties of all types of porous structures is emphasized. It integrates diverse research in different fields such as localized metal corrosion, semiconductor electrochemistry, deposition into pores, matrix materials and optical spectroscopy in order to develop a highly transdisciplinary approach to the topic. Emphasis will be on pit and pore formation, porous-structure/surface-property relations, work relevant to the formation of advanced materials and their characterization, and applications of these materials in different areas of science. The symposium brings together scientists from various research fields such as materials science, electrochemistry, physics, chemistry, engineering and biology.

Topic Close-up #6

SYMPOSIUM H07: Emerging Nanomaterials and Devices

THE SCOPE of this symposium will cover all aspects of nanomaterials related to device physics, device design and functionality, including processing, device fabrication, materials integration and reliability. As CMOS scaling is reaching its limit, emerging nanomaterials and novel devices are being intensively studied for extending or replacing the conventional silicon-based electronics.

FEATURING oral and poster presentations on the research of emerging nanomaterials for novel devices, integrated electronics, photonic and electrochemical/mechanical applications as well.

INVITED SPEAKERS: Hiroshi Mizuta, JAIST Japan; Mikael Östling, KTH, Sweden, Yutaka Ohno, Nagoya University, Japan; Heinz von Seggern, TU Darmstadt, Germany; Charles Cheung, NIST, USA; Walter Weber, TU Dresden, Germany. Learn about all the topics!

Topic Close-up #7

SYMPOSIUM G02: Semiconductors, Dielectrics, and Metals for Nanoelectronics 14

FOCUSED ON high mobility and special semiconductor materials (e.g. SiGe, III-V, SiC, GaN), emerging 2-dimemsional semiconductors (e.g. MoS2, WSe2, black phosphorous, silicene, germanene, graphene), high-k gate dielectrics, metal gates, and Ohmic contacts for the new non-silicon channel materials, memory (e.g. resistive RAM, ferroelectric RAM, magnetic RAM, phase-change RAM), nanoelectronics and nanotechnology (e.g. FinFET, multigate MOSFETs, nanotubes, nanowires). The scope of the symposium includes surface/interface modeling, band offsets, surface passivation, growth and processing, physical/chemical/electrical characterization, transistor characteristics, traps and reliability.
