Highly Stacked Nanowire FETs To Enhance Drive Current And Transistor Density


A technical paper titled “Fabrication and performance of highly stacked GeSi nanowire field effect transistors” was published by researchers at National Taiwan University. Abstract: "Horizontal gate-all-around field effect transistors (GAAFETs) are used to replace FinFETs due to their good electrostatics and short channel control. Highly stacked nanowire channels are widely believed to en... » read more

Chip Industry Talent Shortage Drives Academic Partnerships


Universities around the world are forming partnerships with semiconductor companies and governments to help fill open and future positions, to keep curricula current and relevant, and to update and expand skills for working engineers. Talent shortages repeatedly have been cited as the number one challenge for the chip industry. Behind those concerns are several key drivers, and many more dom... » read more

Solution Processable Pentafluorophenyl EndCapped Dithienothiophene Organic Semiconductors for Hole Transporting Organic Field Effect Transistors


Abstract: "Two solution‐processable organic semiconductors, DFPT‐DTTR (1) and DFPbT‐DTTR (2), composed of pentafluorophenyl (FP) end‐capped 3,5‐dialkyl dithienothiophene (DTTR) core with thiophene (T) or bithiophene (bT) as π‐bridged spacers are developed and investigated for their optical, electrochemical, microstructural, and electrical properties. With more conjugated bithiophe... » read more
