SINANO Device Modeling Summer School

The Third SINANO Device Modeling Summer School will be held in the historic Bertinoro Castle (Bertinoro (FC), Italy) on September 1-5 2008.

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

These lectures will be conducted by very prestigeous professors and researchers.
Regarding the topic of "Analytical and compact models", Dr RaphaĆ«l 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.
