Convergence of More Moore, More than Moore and Beyond Moore
Materials, Devices, and Nanosystems
"This book rightly acknowledges that more Moore, more than Moore, and beyond Moore are temporary, if not artificial, partitions. The three can neither displace nor substitute one another. Denser integration, new devices, and additional materials complement each other and emerge when the technology is ready and economics is right.”Prof. Chenming Hu, University of California at Berkeley, USA

The era of Sustainable and Energy Efficient Nanoelectronics and Nanosystems has come. The research and development on Scalable and 3D integrated Diversified functions together with new computing architectures is in full swing. Besides data processing, data storage, new sensing modes and communication capabilities need the revision of process architecture to enable the Heterogeneous co integration of add-on devices with CMOS: the new defined functions and paradigms open the way to Augmented Nanosystems. The choices for future breakthroughs will request the study of new devices, circuits and computing architectures and to take new unexplored paths including as well new materials and integration schmes.
This book reviews in two sections, including seven chapters, essential modules to build Diversified Nanosystems based on Nanoelectronics and finally how they pave the way to the definition of Nanofunctions for Augmented Nanosystems.
“Convergence of More Moore, More than Moore and Beyond Moore: Materials, Devices and Nanosystems” is the fourth volume in Jenny Stanford Series on Intelligent Nanosystems. The book features seven(7) chapters divided in two(2) parts entitled
Part I (chapters 1 to 4)From Nanoelectronics to Diversified Nanosystems featuring on the Sustainable and Energy Efficient Era, Non Volatile Memories evolution from 2 to 3D for the Terabit class chips needs, 3D vertical Resistive devices for Storage Class Memories featuring Self-Rectifying and Self-Selecting cells, low power and low losses Radio Frequency and millimeter-wave SOI CMOS devices for Internet of Things communication.

"This book rightly acknowledges that more Moore, more than Moore, and beyond Moore are temporary, if not artificial, partitions. The three can neither displace nor substitute one another. Denser integration, new devices, and additional materials complement each other and emerge when the technology is ready and economics is right.”~Prof. Chenming Hu, University of California at Berkeley, USA
“Improving semiconductor device performance by miniaturization technology is approaching its end. New materials, new architectures, and new functional applications are necessary for future breakthroughs. This book presents important topics, covered by leading experts in the field of nanoelectronics and nanosystems, that are quite useful to catch up on the current state of the art and to seek for future prospects.”~Prof. Shunri Oda, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan
“Not only engineering professionals but also researchers, especially students beginning research, may save sufficient time learning from noted experts in the field with a quick overview of 2D to 3D nanodevices and nanosystems.”~Prof. Steve Chung, National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan
“New heterogeneous integration technologies based on all aspects of materials, devices, and nanosystems are indispensable in the era of sustainable and energy-efficient nanoelectronics and nanosystems. This book provides useful information and insights into the prospects of future technological revolution.”~Prof. Mitsumasa Koyanagi, Tohoku University, Japan
Despite its somewhat whimsical title, this book is both serious and highly technical. It is the fourth volume in a series previously known as the Jenny Stanford Series on Intelligent Nanosystems. The Moore references relate to traditional CMOS technology. “More Moore” refers to the linear extrapolation of the scalable CMOS; “More than Moore” involves the application-specific technologies that work alongside CMOS; and “Beyond Moore” denotes the technologies that might replace CMOS by using atomic or molecular properties other than electric charge to store information.
In the words of the editor, the larger goal for the book is to “search for sustainable and energy-efficient technology convergence in the ‘Internet of Everything’ era.” Across seven chapters written by different teams of experts worldwide, the book covers a variety of technology solutions—some that are nothing short of amazing. These include a single-molecule and zeptogram sensor (a thousandth of a billionth of a billionth of a gram), and a self-powered sensor that harvests energy from the environment.
The book includes colorful and black-and-white diagrams, device photos and an extensive index. The small number of deceptively simple equations are an invitation to the reader to find the full details in the technical literature. With such cutting-edge topics, there are also no end-of-chapter exercises. Given the advanced nature of the topics presented, the book is clearly a good resource for professionals in the field and could also be used as a textbook for a special topics graduate course.~Optics & Photonics News
