PhD Studentship at Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium

This research project is funded by FNRS (Fond National de la Recherche Scientifique belge) and will be performed in a close collaboration with other European research projects (Nanosil, Nanofunction, etc.) on related subjects.

Description of work The project intends to explore the following open scientific questions. -Objective and accurate evaluation of transport properties in advanced devices. – Impact of leakage current on both static and dynamic transistor behaviors resulting from thin (and high-k) gate dielectrics and channel materials with small energy-gap. – Introduction of UTB and UTB2 (with thin buried oxide) device architectures calls for in-depth analysis of substrate bias, optimization of both BOX and film thicknesses, substrate doping. – Reliability tradeoffs associated with new materials /architectural options. – Variability analyses in the extended temperature and frequency ranges.

Requirements The candidate must have obtained a Master degree in electronic engineering, physics, or a related field. Preferably he/she should already have a good background in solid-state physics and be familiar with electrical characterization and TCAD simulations. He/she has to send a CV, a motivation letter, copies of degree certificates, academic record and a letter of recommendation of his/her Master thesis supervisor.
