The SINANO Summer School was held in 2005 and 2006 in the framework of the former SINANO European Network of Excellence, and is currently continued under the umbrella of the new NANOSIL Network of Excellence and of the Integrated Project PULLNANO.
The goal of the SINANO Summer School is to increase the knowledge of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in the fields of advanced modeling, simulation and characterization techniques for conventional and nanoscale CMOS devices. The lectures use to address topics such as device physics, device models, numerical techniques, device simulation tools, and experimental characterization techniques.
The 5 days program of the School will be dedicated to the following topics:
Prospects for further development of CMOS technology
Transport models for device simulation
Experimental electrical device characterization
Analytical and compact models
Post CMOS devices
Silicon technology for photo-voltaic energy conversion
Regarding the topic of "Analytical and compact models", Dr Raphaël Clerc (IMEP, France), will talk about “Device technology oriented analytical models”
Peter Baumgartner (Infineon) will give a lecture entitled: “RF and noise characterization of transistors and circuits”
Prof Paolo Pavan will talk about “Current trends in non-volatile memories”
Besides, there will also be a great social program which will include dinners, hiking and other outdoor activities..
The registration form should be sent before July 30.
