Micro-nanoelectronics Components: Modeling of Diffusion and Operation Processes concentrates mainly on the modeling of diffusion processes and the behavior of modern integrated component, from the material to the architecture of the systems, going through the process, the "device" and the circuit. In recent years, we have been talking about nano-electronics, both in the industries and the public entities concerned; it is a reality, even if a fashion effect and more pragmatically, the search for contracts, are not foreign to the use of this prefix. Each specialty gives a definition of this term; for the time being, let us say that nanoelectronics concerns electronic systems whose components comprise at least two "clearly" submicronic dimensions, typically less than 100 nm.

Key Features

  • This book seeks to provide the core of modeling in micro (nano) electronics
  • Introduces the equations underlying the modelizations and, ultimately, the related simulations
  • Proposes what modifications should be made with respect to modeling, to effectively return on the same level to the field of nanoelectronics
