Technical Paper Round-Up: March 22

New academic research papers include DRAM cache architecture, PUFs, MIMO antenna, image sensors, 2D materials, In-Memory, photonics and more.


New memories, materials, and transistor types, and processes for making those devices, highlighted the past week’s technical papers. That includes everything from vertical MoS2 to programmable black phosphorus image sensors and photonic lift-off processes for flexible thin-film materials.

Papers continue to flow from all parts of the supply chain, with some new studies out of Pakistan, Seoul, China, Munich, the Netherlands, and the U.S. Air Force Research Lab.  Find all technical papers in our library here.

Semiconductor Engineering is in the process of building this library of research papers.  Please send suggestions for what else you’d like us to incorporate. If you have research papers you are trying to promote, we will review them to see if they are a good fit for our global audience. At a minimum, papers need to be well researched and documented, relevant to the semiconductor ecosystem, and free of marketing bias. There is no cost involved for us posting links to papers.
