Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...
...describe processes and behavior of integrated electronic devices.
...work with a TCAD tool and its user guide.
...describe the capabilites of modern TCAD tools.
...describe current trends in selected areas of nanotechnology.
... to understand the function of modern logic devices and data storage
... to compare the principles of different displays (LCD, FET, OLED, elect.paper)

Subject of course

After introductory lectures on micro and nanoelectronics (Moore's law, process technology, TCAD, new MOSFETs) groups of participants perform TCAD simulations of a semiconductor device (32nm MOSFET, 14nm FinFET, process and device simulation). A simulation template is given to the students which has to be modified in order to study certain effects. Afterwards, lectures will be given on further topics in the field of nanoelectronics and information technology is presented (new device concepts, semiconductor memories, sensors, displays). They prepare for possible bachelor theses.

Teaching methods

Lectures; work on a simulation problem using TCAD Sentaurus.

Mode of examination

Oral

Additional information

The practical work will be done in November. Registration for a group will be at the end of October. The final exam can only be taken after successful completion of the practical work. If you have given a presentation, unless you have  received other feedback, you have passed the practical work.

Details for the online format of the lectures will be announced before the start of the semester.
