Zachery Jacobson and Tsu-Jae King Liu

NDSEG Fellowship

Future transistor design will require robust and fast modeling of Band-to-Band Tunneling for optimization of tunneling processes in devices. Relevant topics for future research include source optimization in TFETs, variability drivers and metrics, analytical models for tunneling currents, and better understanding of device requirements for circuit level design.
