Tyndall-Logo-RGB_0Micro/nano devices and systems

Over the last 40 years, the silicon semiconductor industry has been driven by “ Moore’s Law” which states that the number of transistors on a silicon chip will double roughly every two years. This has been enabled by high volume manufacturing of reduced geometry structures which has resulted in digital circuits with critical dimensions in the nanometre size range, and with enormously-increased performances and functionalities relative to those obtained even a few years ago. This ongoing development of integrated micro/nanoelectronic solutions requires significant advances in materials and processes to overcome the dimensional limitations imposed by current technologies thereby enabling the definition and control of structures and devices at the nanoscale.
