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.
Part II (chapters 5 to 7) Nanofunctions for Augmented Nanosystems including the study of Graphene based Nanoelectromechanical (NEM) switches for Single Molecule and zeptogram resolution sensing, self-powered 3D Nanosensor Systems for mechanical interfacing based on a piezotronic effect and triboelectric nanogenerators, the scaling and packaging of implantable biomedical silicon devices.
