Special Symposium

Scaling of semiconductor devices has continued unabated for the past three decades, and will likely continue for the near future. However, at the end of this decade (ca. 2011), the nature of the silicon device is such that many alternative approaches are likely to be viable contenders.

Electronic, photonic and communication device opportunities are emerging, but require coordinated industrial efforts to realize their potential. Already, new materials (SOI, SiGe, strained Si) are used in current production, high-k dielectrics, fully metallic gates and more non-(Si, SiO2) are expected in the coming generations. In addition, low dimension structures such as Fin-FETS are being considered.

Yet, the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors does not identify logic devices beyond CMOS, which presents a unique opportunity for the research community to influence the future of technology. Consequently, this symposium will address the role of several prospective technologies in creating new device options in the post-2011 era (sub-10 nm equivalent technologies). It will provide a forum for the presentation of new designs, processes, devices, architectures, and characterization at the nanoscale. Content will be mindful of the rigors of the existing roadmaps and their associated infrastructure, but will also explore extensions to the roadmap in alignment with industry, SIA and governmental initiatives.
