High performance germanium nanowire field-effect transistors and tunneling field-effect transistors
The scaling of metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) field-effect transistors (FETs) has continued for over four decades, providing device performance gains and considerable economic benefits. However, continuing this scaling ...
A study of electrical and material characteristics of III-V MOSFETs and TFETs with high-[kappa] gate dielectrics
The performance and power scaling of metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect-transistors (MOSFETs) has been historically achieved through shrinking the gate length of transistors for over three decades. As Si complementary ...
Sustainable microgrid and electric vehicle charging demand for a smarter grid
A “smarter grid” is expected to be more flexible and more reliable than traditional electric power grids. Among technologies required for the “smarter grid” deployment, this dissertation presents a sustainable microgrid ...
Predictive power management for multi-core processors
Energy consumption by computing systems is rapidly increasing due to the growth of data centers and pervasive computing. In 2006 data center energy usage in the United States reached 61 billion kilowatt-hours (KWh) at an ...
Carbon nanotube thin film transistor on flexible substrate and its applications as switches in a phase shifter for a flexible phased-array antenna
In this dissertation, a carbon nanotube thin-film transistor is fabricated on a flexible substrate. Combined printing and stamping techniques are used for the fabrication. An ink-jet printing technique is used to form the ...
