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.
