Metal substitution in electrical wires by materials with high conductivity like carbon nanotubes (CNT) is interesting for short term applications in avionic and space thanks to the huge benefit of such wiring in term of mass. Indeed such wires will significantly improve the energy consumption of planes for example. Individual performances of CNTs can be better than the copper one. However, the electrical conductivity of CNT wires still remains lower than the metal ones. The objective…Continue

We propose to develop a new device defined as a reconfigurable silicon nanowire transistor. This novel concept is based on a universal transistor that can be reversely configured as p-FET or n-FET by changing the polarity of source and drain Schottky junctions. The activity of the postdoc will be focused both on the simulation and the fabrication of reconfigurable MOSFET transistor. A preliminary theoretical work will be performed to deeply understand the working principle of the…Continue
