Learning outcomes

The course focuses on the relationship between materials and the development of nanoelectronic devices. Starting from an analysis of the main characteristics of CMOS scaling and the role played by advanced materials in furthering Moore's law in the last decade, the role of emerging device concepts and the way they are enabled by novel material systems will then be introduced. Practical case studies and design examples will be discussed.
