Our laboratory's motivations
In today's highly information-oriented society, ｈigh-end servers are supporting IT infrastructures, and smart phones and sensor devices enable valuable services which make our life much more comfortable. The core of these electronic systems and devices is made by highly integrated electric circuits. An integrated circuit consists of tremendous amount of silicon transistors and memory devices which are fabricated on a silicon wafer. Current transistor size reaches about 20nm or less. Billions of transistors are fabricated on 300mm silicon wafer by exploiting advanced process technology. Internet-of-things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications require new innovative transistor and memory device technologies. For the integrated circuit and system to be able to provide new deliverable values, we are exploring new innovative nanoelectronic devices.
