In this book, internationally recognized researchers give a state-of-the-art overview of the electronic device architectures required for the nano-CMOS era and beyond. Challenges relevant to the scaling of CMOS nanoelectronics are addressed through different core CMOS and memory device options in the first part of the book. The second part reviews new device concepts for nanoelectronics beyond CMOS. The book covers the fundamental limits of core CMOS, improving scaling by the introduction of new materials or processes, new architectures using SOI, multigates and multichannels, and quantum computing.

About the Editor

Simon Deleonibus (MSc 1979, PhD 1982, Paris University) was with Thomson Semiconducteurs, Grenoble, France, from 1981 to 1986 in device engineering development and then production. In 1986 he was with CEA LETI advanced device and process modules research specialising in CMOS and flash memories applications. From 1998 to 2008 he was the director of the Electronic Nanodevices Laboratory with 55 researchers under his charge. Since 2008, he is the chief scientific director of Silicon Technologies of LETI. He owns the initial patent on contact plug principle, widely used as a standard process by the semiconductor industry. He actualised the first 20-nm gate length MOSFET, the world's smallest transistor, in June 1999. He is the editor of IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices and a member of the International Technology Roadmap of Semiconductors (ITRS), of the board of directors of the Nanosciences Foundation and of The European Research Council Engineering Panel. A Fellow of the IEEE, he is its distinguished lecturer. He is also the research director of the French CEA.
