The history of information and communications technologies (ICT) has been paved by both evolutive paths and challenging alternatives, so-called emerging devices and architectures. Their introduction poses the issues of state variable definition, information processing, and process integration in 2D, above IC, and in 3D.
This book reviews the capabilities of integrated nanosystems to match low power and high performance either by hybrid and heterogeneous CMOS in 2D/3D or by emerging devices for alternative sensing, actuating, data storage, and processing. The choice of future ICTs will need to take into account not only their energy efficiency but also their sustainability in the global ecosystem.

Simon Deleonibus retired from Leti, a technology research institute at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) on January 1, 2016, as chief scientist after 30 years of research on the architecture of micronanoelectronic devices. Before joining CEA-Leti, he was with Thomson Semiconductors (1981–1986), where he developed and transferred to production advanced microelectronic devices and products. He gained his PhD in applied physics from Paris University in 1982. He is a visiting professor at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo, Japan) since 2014, National Chiao Tung University (Hsinchu, Taiwan) since 2015, and Chinese Academy of Science (Beijing, PRC) since 2016.
"What could be the work horse for driving low-power high-performance nanosystems in the emerging post-Moore era? The definitive and authoritative answer is illuminated in this timely and well-articulated tome."
Prof. Leon Chua, University of California at Berkeley, USA
"Electronics has come a long way since the invention of the silicon integrated circuit, and this success has created an insatiable appetite for more and more computation at the same or less power. Standard CMOS is being pushed to its limits, and new ideas are needed. Simon Deleonibus has enlisted leading experts from across the world to review the current state of a wide variety of novel device, circuit, and architectural research. This book provides an introduction that discusses the opportunities as well as the challenges for these new possibilities. For an understanding of what’s happening at the frontiers of electronics research, you won’t find a better source than Emerging Devices for Low-Power and High-Performance Nanosystems: Physics, Novel Functions, and Data Processing."
Prof. Mark Lundstrom, Purdue University, USA
"We are now at the threshold of the Integrated Nanosystem Era, a historical turning point of electronics. This is an excellent book that quickly but firmly provides an overview of emerging devices and related technologies."
Prof. Michiharu Tabe, Shizuoka University, Japan
