Symposium ED3—Physics, Chemistry and Materials for Beyond Silicon Electronics

For more than four decades, silicon has been used as the material to fabricate integrated circuits which are now ubiquitously used in almost all electronic products. Today, the market demands electronic chips that are significantly more power efficient and more diverse in functionalities. To meet these challenges, new materials such as III-V, Ge, GaN, SiC, graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides are being investigated for logic, memory, power and photonic applications, with the aim of integrating multiple functional blocks on the chip . A multidisciplinary effort is ongoing worldwide to explore and evaluate new materials systems. This symposium seeks to convene scientists and engineers working on various aspects of these new materials; physics, chemistry, growth, interfaces, doping, metallization, process integration and characterization to discuss their outstanding fundamentals and bottleneck issues.

Contributed abstracts in this symposium will be highlighted by invited speakers from both academia and industry to accelerate the progress in this field for the adoption of new materials in beyond silicon electronics.

Topics will include:

  • Theory and modeling of materials for beyond Si electronics (logic, memory, power and photonics)
  • Structural, optical and transport properties for III-V, Ge, GaN, SiC, graphene and TMD
  • Approaches to growth for III-V, Ge, GaN, SiC, graphene and TMD: MBE, MOCVD, CVD and ALD
  • Surface treatments and chemical functionalization of non-silicon materials
  • Metal contacts to non-silicon semiconductors including materials, interfaces and doping
  • Gate-stack materials and interfaces on non-silicon semiconductors including High K dielectrics, oxide stacks and metal gates

Invited Speakers:

  • Vidhya Chakrapani (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA)
  • Xia Fengnian (Yale University, USA)
  • Gianluca Fiori (Universita di Pisa, Italy)
  • Zia Karim (Aixtron, USA)
  • Philip Kim (Harvard University, USA)
  • Steve Koester (University of Minnesota, USA)
  • Mathieu Luisier (ETH Zurich, Switzerland)
  • Sayeef Salahuddin (University of California, Berkeley, USA)
  • PapaRao Satyavolu (Suny Poly Sematech, USA)
  • Volker Sorger (George Washington University, USA)
  • Stephan Wirths (IBM Zurich, Switzerland)
  • Peter Ye (Purdue University, USA)
  • Won Jong Yoo (Sungkyunkwan University, Republic of Korea)
