Special Issue on Design and Analysis of Low-power Electronic Circuits Using Low-Dimensional Nanoscale Devices

Published 21 October, 2020

As silicon-based semiconductor devices approach their ultimate scaling limits, alternative device structures and materials are emerging rapidly to complement or replace conventional silicon-based devices. Alternate device structures exhibit attractive properties such as a subthreshold slope less than 60mv/dec leading to aggressive power supply scaling. Another approach uses emerging 2D materials for low-power applications. In particular, the transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) and carbon-based materials are highly promising as an attractive material for low-power device and circuit applications. Intense research is underway to develop the modeling, simulation and characterisation of these devices for application in low-power electronic circuits with improved performance.

The special issue presents the recent research from around the world in the area of low-power circuit design using low-dimensional electronic devices.

Topics covered:

  • Low-power circuit design
  • Low-power devices
  • 2D material-based devices
  • Quantum devices
  • Emerging non-classical transistors for low-power applications
  • Adiabatic circuits
  • Modeling of quantum-mechanical devices
  • Circuit application of carbon-based devices
  • Applications of chalcogenide-based devices
  • Devices for low-power applications
  • Nano electromechanical systems
