The Russia-Japan-USA-Europe Symposium on Fundamental and Applied Problems of Terahertz Devices and Technologies (RJUSE-TeraTech 2016), held at Katahira Campus of Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan on October 31 – November 4, 2016, aims to bring together researchers from Russia, Japan, USA and Europe, who are working on the broad range of related problems in the terahertz devices, technologies and applications, to discuss on state-of-the-art results and future directions and collaborations in the development of THz.
This is the fifth in the series of preceding successful symposiums in Terahertz Devices and Technologies. It contains 14 selected extended papers presented at the RJUSE-TeraTech 2016 symposium, addressing the variety of topics, in particular, THz detectors based on double heterojunction bipolar transistors (DHBT) and field effect transistors (FET) utilizing resonant plasma effects, quantum cascade (QCL) and HgCdTe quantum-well heterostructures, and graphene-based THz devices.
In this book, the scaling challenges for CMOS: SiGe BiCMOS, THz and niche technology are covered; the first article looks at scaling challenges for CMOS from an industrial point of view (review of the latest innovations); the second article focuses on SiGe BiCMOS technologies (deals with high-speed up to the THz-region), and the third article reports on circuits associated with source/drain integration in 14 nm and beyond FinFET technology nodes. Followed by the last two articles on niche applications for emerging technologies: one deals with carbon nanotube network and plasmonics for the THz region carbon, while the other reviews the recent developments in integrated on-chip nano-optomechanical systems.Contents: PrefaceScaling Challenges for Advanced CMOS Devices (Ajey P Jacob, Ruilong Xie, Min Gyu Sung, Lars Liebmann, Rinus T P Lee and Bill Taylor)High-Speed SiGe BiCMOS Technologies and Circuits (A Mai, I Garcia Lopez, P Rito, R Nagulapalli, A Awny, M Elkhouly, M Eissa, M Ko, A Malignaggi, M Kucharski, H J Ng, K Schmalz and D Kissinger)Optimization of Selective Growth of SiGe for Source/Drain in 14nm and Beyond Nodes FinFETs (Henry H Radamson, Jun Luo, Changliang Qin, Huaxiang Yin, Huilong Zhu, Chao Zhao and Guilei Wang)Dynamic Conductivity and Two-Dimensional Plasmons in Lateral CNT Networks (Maxim Ryzhii, Taiichi Otsuji, Victor Ryzhii, Vladimir Mitin, Michael S Shur, Georgy Fedorov and Vladimir Leiman)Integrated On-Chip Nano-Optomechanical Systems (Zhu Diao, Vincent T K Sauer and Wayne K Hiebert)Author Index
Enabling materials research involving growth and characterization of novel devices such as multi-bit nonvolatile random access memory with fast erase, high performance circuits, and their potential applications in developing new high-speed systems. Other articles focus on emerging nanoelectronic devices including topological insulators, spatial wavefunction switching (SWS) FETs as compact high-speed 2-bit SRAM circuits, quantum dot channel (QDC) FETs. Fundamental work on critical layer thickness in ZnSe/GaAs and other material systems impacts electronic and photonic devise integrating mismatched layers are also reported. While another article investigates linearly graded GaAsP-GaAs system with emphasis on strain relaxation.
