Research and Markets: Nanoelectronic Devices

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7da5cc/nanoelectronic_dev) has announced the addition of the "Nanoelectronic Devices" book to their offering.

Nanoelectronic devices have been developed as a successor of microelectronic devices, following the evolutionary path of scaling down. In this book, the authors attempt to build the principles of nanoelectronic devices based on those of microelectronic devices wherever possible and introduce the inherently nanoelectronic principles gradually.

The book starts with a brief review of quantum mechanics and solid-state physics that can form the basis of semiconductor device physics. The basics of electron transport and p-n junctions are covered, as they relate to the fundamental principles of MOSFET and other nanoelectronic devices. From there, the operations of MOS capacitors and MOSFETs are developed and some basic CMOS circuits are introduced.

Nanoelectronic devices are categorized into three types: quantum well, quantum wire, and quantum dot devices depending on the dimensionality of their active region. Three-dimensional device structures, new materials, and operating principles are emphasized. The basics of the wave nature of electrons, ballistic transport, and single electronics are explained as unique phenomena in those low-dimensional electron systems. The last chapter is devoted to the nano-biotechnology application of field-effect transistors.

Reviews:

"This is a unique book that offers basic knowledge, operation principles, and applications of nanoelectronic devices. With ample schematic illustrations and clear descriptions, the book is suitable for grasping the ideas of various types of devices and going into profound physics that appears in each device. I strongly recommend this book to graduate students and young researchers and engineers in industries and academia." Prof Toshiro Hiramoto - Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo, Japan

"This book provides a timely bridge from the basic quantum mechanical theories (especially those in solid-state physics) to modern electronic devices, including nanowire field-effect transistors (NW-FETs), single-electron transistors (SETs), and biomolecular sensors." Prof Zhiping Yu - Tsinghua University, China
