The threshold voltage variation (?Vt) of less than 40mV across wafer is also reported for 25nm gate length Fully Depleted SOI (FDSOI) devices using undoped channel and high-k and metal gates technology.
The work, carried out together with ST Microelectronics and SOITEC within the frame of the MEDEA+ DECISIF project, made use of the SOI process flow available in the CEA-LETI facilities in Grenoble. The device results indicated that the undoped channel FDSOI device with high-k/metal gate stack is a valid alternative to reduce variability issues at 22nm and below.
Comprehensive results of the influence of Si thickness, strain and process on the variability will be presented at the IEDM 2008 conference in December, where CEA-LETI will participate with over 10 papers on different aspects of nanotechnologies, advanced devices and process integration.
Leti operates with an annual budget of 174 M€ and employs 1,000 people with, in addition, more than 600 external collaborators (postgraduates, research and corporate partners). Leti has 8,000m² of clean rooms, an equipment portfolio worth 200 M€ and invests more than 40 M€ a year on new equipment. Leti has a dynamic Intellectual Property policy and has filed more than 200 new patent applications in 2007. Instigator of the MINATEC® pole of innovation, CEA Leti is also one of its principal partners, beside the Grenoble INP (Grenoble Institute of Technology) and the local authorities.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
