Special issue on advanced microelectronics technologies

16.05.2011
A special issue on Advanced Microelectronics Technologies is published in Volume 54, Issue 5 of SCIENCE CHINA: Information Sciences, in May, 2011. The issue contains 14 invited papers contributed by some leading researchers and internationally renowned experts in the field of microelectronics in both industry and academic from all over the world.

Driven by the ever-increasing market demands in computing, communication, and multimedia applications, the microelectronics industry has got rapid development recently.

Because of innovations and advancements at almost every technological level, such as material, process, equipment, device, circuit and system, silicon-based logic and memory IC technologies continue to be the industry's R&D focus with nano-scaled scaling.

This gives a strong boost to the traditional "Moore's Law", which keeps on increasing the function density while reducing the cost per function in an IC and brings the R&D activities to a new level known as "More Moore". At the same time, a new trend in microelectronic industry, namely "More than Moore", has expanded the scope of IC applications by integrating non-digital functionalities into traditional CMOS micro-systems, thus enabling the deployment of innovative product solutions required by modern information world.

As the abovementioned amazing progress of microelectronics ongoing, the editorial board of SCIENCE CHINA: Information Sciences was highly motivated to publish a special issue to highlight the current developments within this exciting field. This special issue covers the advances in state-of-the-art development, grand challenges, innovative solutions, and broad scope of microelectronic technologies related to both "More Moore" and "More than Moore". The issue contains 14 invited papers from both industry (e.g., Intel, IBM, Applied Material, Macronix, etc.) and academic (e.g., Yale University, Peking University, UCLA, CEA-Leti, etc.), as the following:

• The driving force for development of IC and system in future: Reducing the power consumption and improving the ratio of performance to power consumption (invited)

• Variability in nanoscale CMOS technology

• Advanced strain engineering for state-of-the-art nanoscale CMOS technology

• Next-generation lithography for 22 and 16 nm technology nodes and beyond

• Inelastic electron tunneling spectroscopy (IETS) study of high-k gate dielectrics

• Ultra-thin films and multigate devices architectures for future CMOS scaling
• Si nanowire FET and its modeling
• 3D integration review
• FR/wireless-interconnect: The next wave of connectivityy
• State-of-the-art flash memory devices and post-flash emerging memories
• Phase change memory
• Resistance switching for RRAM applications
• High power devices in wide bandgap semiconductors
• Low power 3.1-10.6 GHz IR-UWB transmitter for Gbps wireless communications

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
