2011 Silicon Nanoelectronics Workshop

The 2011 Silicon Nanoelectronics Workshop (SNW) will be held at Rihga Royal Hotel Kyoto, Japan on June 12-13, 2011.

The workshop will focus on silicon-related nanoelectronics to bridge a gap between the Si nano-technology and the "real" VLSI world. The first Silicon Nanoelectronics Workshop was successfully held in June, 1996 at Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. The 2011 Silicon Nanoelectronics Workshop will be the 16th in a series of annual workshops.

The workshop will cover various aspects of VLSI-related silicon nanoelectronics. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Si based sub-10 nm FETs with conventional and novel architecture including vertical and multiple-gate devices and novel channel materials
Device physics of Si based nanodevices including quantum effects, nonequilibrium and ballistic transport
Si based nanoscale device modelling and simulations
Extreme processing of Si based nanostructures, including nanopatterning
Junction and insulator technology for Si based nanodevices
Nanoscale surface, interface, and heterojunction effects in Si based devices
Si based device scaling issues including doping fluctuations and atomic granularity
Circuit design issues and novel circuit architectures for Si based nanodevices including silicon based quantum computing
Optoelectronics using silicon nanostructures
Nanoelectronics challenging to replace Si technologies (Graphene, CNTs, etc.)

Im Focus: Reliable in-line inspections of high-strength automotive body parts within seconds

Nondestructive material testing (NDT) is a fast and effective way to analyze the quality of a product during the manufacturing process. Because defective materials can lead to malfunctioning finished products, NDT is an essential quality assurance measure, especially in the manufacture of safety-critical components such as automotive B-pillars. NDT examines the quality without damaging the component or modifying the surface of the material. At this year's Blechexpo trade fair in Stuttgart, Fraunhofer IZFP will have an exhibit that demonstrates the nondestructive testing of high-strength automotive body parts using 3MA. The measurement results are available in a matter of seconds.

To minimize vehicle weight and fuel consumption while providing the highest level of crash safety, automotive bodies are reinforced with elements made from...

Im Focus: Kick-off for a new era of precision astronomy

The MICADO camera, a first light instrument for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), has entered a new phase in the project: by agreeing to a Memorandum of Understanding, the partners in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, and Italy, have all confirmed their participation. Following this milestone, the project's transition into its preliminary design phase was approved at a kick-off meeting held in Vienna. Two weeks earlier, on September 18, the consortium and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), which is building the telescope, have signed the corresponding collaboration agreement.

As the first dedicated camera for the E-ELT, MICADO will equip the giant telescope with a capability for diffraction-limited imaging at near-infrared...

Im Focus: Locusts at the wheel: University of Graz investigates collision detector inspired by insect eyes

Self-driving cars will be on our streets in the foreseeable future. In Graz, research is currently dedicated to an innovative driver assistance system that takes over control if there is a danger of collision. It was nature that inspired Dr Manfred Hartbauer from the Institute of Zoology at the University of Graz: in dangerous traffic situations, migratory locusts react around ten times faster than humans. Working together with an interdisciplinary team, Hartbauer is investigating an affordable collision detector that is equipped with artificial locust eyes and can recognise potential crashes in time, during both day and night.
