Trond Ytterdal is at Notre Dame for four weeks to work with the LEAST research team on implementing the TFET model as a native model in AIM-Spice and designing/testing digital and analog circuits using the TFET model. Dr. Ytterdal is a professor in the department of electronics and telecommunications at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology-Trondheim. (July 2014)
Sara Fathipour presented her research on "Investigation of aging and restoration of polyethylene-oxide cesiumperchlorate solid polymer electrolyte used for ion doping of a WSe2 field-effect transistor" at the Device Research Conference poster session in Santa Barbara. (June 2014)
Buchanan Bourdon (Notre Dame) and Patrick Foley (University College Cork, Ireland) were awarded NDnano Undergraduate Research Fellowships to work with Dr. Seabaugh's group this summer. Buchanan is continuing his work on simulating ion-electron transport using COMSOL Multiphysics software; Patrick's research is focused on the automation of testing devices on wafers using a Cascade auto-prober, in conjunction with two software programs: Nucleus and Wavevue. (May 2014)
Hao Lu's paper on "Tunnel Field Effect Transistors: State of the Art" was published in the Journal of the Electron Devices Society. (May 2014)
Hao Lu received her master’s degree in electrical engineering and is continuing her research on TFET compact modeling and 2D graphene ionic memory to complete her Ph.D. (May 2014)
Tim Vasen has successfully defended his doctoral dissertation on "Investigation of III-V tunneling field-effect transistors." He has returned to Lund University in Sweden, where he is employed as a principal engineer. (April 2014)
Congratulations to Hao Lu for passing her doctoral qualifying exam, December 5, 2014. Her thesis topic is"Development of a universal tunnel transistor spice model and nanometer ion conductor for 2D-crystal memory.
Huamin Li has joined the LEAST research team at Notre Dame and is focused on the development of low-voltage steep-subthreshold-swing transistors. Huamin was previously a postdoc at the Advanced Institute of Nano Technology at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, Korea. (April 2014)
Qin Zhang has completed her postdoc assignment with NIST/MIND and is now working with the Information Engineering Department at the University of Pisa in Italy (April 2013).
