Si-passivated Ge Gate Stacks with Low Interface State and Oxide Trap Densities Using Thulium Silicate

Speaker: Laura Zurauskaite, KTH Royal Institute of Technology Abstract: Ultra-thin epitaxially grown Si layers have been used for Ge surface passivation in CMOS devices utilizing standard silicon SiO2/HfO2 gate stack. In this work, we propose a high-k TmSiO interfacial layer, which has shown excellent performance on Si, instead of the chemical SiO2. We successfully transfer… Read more

Life on Venus, and how to explore Venus with high-temperature electronics

Speaker: Carl-Mikael Zetterling, KTH Recently phosphine was discovered in the cloud cover of Venus. Since the researchers could find no natural cause, it has been speculated in media whether this is a sign of life on Venus. KTH has been working on electronics for high-temperature operation, for instance on the surface of Venus (460 C!)…. Read more
