We investigate nanoelectronic field-effect transistor devices based on various different materials including silicon, III-V semiconductors as well as 2D materials.

 
 

NEMS Sensors

At Institute of Semiconductor Electronics we study a novel readout mechanism of nano-electromechanical sensors based on the modulated of short-channel effects of a field-effect transistor integrated into the sensor. This enables to upscale the number of sensors that can be integrated onto a chip, while enabling a reduction of the complexity of read-out circuits at the same time.

 
 

Photovoltaics
