As part of the EU funding program ASCENT European Nano-electronic Network (, and @ASCENTeu), the AG Nanoelectronic has received a quarter of a 300 mm wafer for one year.

The wafer from CEA-Leti (Grenoble) contains MOS transistor structures with channel dimensions down to 10nm, which are currently only produced for research purposes. Our Ph.D. student Kerim Yilmaz is working on the development of compact models for the description of ultra-short channel length nano-structure transistors. He characterizes the transistors at THM with our device analyzer (Keysight B1500) in order to verify the developed compact model for ultra nanoscale devices.

The aim of ESSDERC and ESSCIRC is to provide an annual European forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in solid-state devices and circuits. The increasing level of integration for system-on-chip design made available by advances in silicon technology is, more than ever before, calling for a deeper interaction among technologists, device experts, IC designers, and system designers. While keeping separate Technical Program Committees, ESSCIRC and ESSDERC are governed by a common Steering Committee and share Plenary Keynote Presentations and Joint Sessions bridging both communities. Attendees registered for either conference are encouraged to attend any of the scheduled parallel sessions, regardless to which conference they belong.

Physically-based compact modeling of electron devices  is crucial for accurate circuit design and simulation. Actually, one of the main limitations to the use of novel device structures in circuit design is the lack of appropriate compact models. On the other hand, compact models are also useful to easily predict the performance of new device technologies. For these reasons, courses on compact modeling will be especially useful to both device engineers and circuit designers.
