SRC and NSF grants $2m to next-generation logic nanoelectronics programs

Abstract:
The university-research consortium Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) of Durham, NC, USA and the US National Science Foundation (NSF) have announced three-year grants totalling $2m for projects at six NSF centers of nanoelectronics research across 10 US universities. The aim is to advance the search for a replacement for the basic complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) field-effect transistor (FET) logic switch structure that has served the microelectronics industry for more than 30 years, and specifically to demonstrate novel computing devices and their feasibility in simple computer circuits in the next 5-10 years.
