  1. 1. Vertical High-Voltage Transistors on Thick Silicon-on-Insulator

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ulrich Heinle; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electronics; SOI; vertical DMOS; trench isolation; power electronics; integration; on-resistance; capacitive coupling; self-heating; switching; Elektronik; TECHNOLOGY Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics Electronics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik Elektronik; Elektronik; Electronics;

    Abstract : More and more electronic products, like battery chargers and power supplies, as well as applications in telecommunications and automotive electronics are based on System-on-Chip solutions, where signal processing and power devices are integrated on the same chip. The integration of different functional units offers many advantages in terms of reliability, reduced power consumption, weight and space reduction, leading to products with better performance at a hopefully lower price.

  2. 2. Schottky Contacs on Silicon Nanowires

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Piscator; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Silicon On Insulator SOI ; Schottky contacts; Palladium silicide; Silicon nanowire;

    Abstract : This thesis demonstrates the effect of charge on Schottky barrier height for metal contacts at the end surfaces of silicon nanowires. It is shown, by measurements and analytical models, how the effective electron barrier is lowered by a positive charge introduced into an oxide embedding the wire. READ MORE

    Abstract : A 130 nm partially depleted silicon-on-insulator (SOI) complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology is evaluated with respect to analog circuit implementation. We perform the evaluation through implementation of three flash analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). READ MORE

  5. 5. Silicon nanowires, nanopillars and quantum dots Fabrication and characterization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Robert Juhasz; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Silicon nanowires; silicon nanopillars; silicon quantum dots; size-reduction; thermal oxidation; electrochemical etching of silicon; photoluminescence; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Condensed matter physics Semiconductor physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Kondenserade materiens fysik Halvledarfysik;

    Abstract : Semiconductor nanotechnology is today a very well studied subject, and demonstrations of possible applications and concepts are abundant. However, well-controlled mass-fabrication on the nanoscale is still a great challenge, and the lack of nanofabrication methods that provide the combination of required fabrication precision and high throughput, limits the large-scale use of nanodevices.
