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: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
