  1. Periodic metallic nanostructures for high-sensitivity biosensing applications

Kuang-Li Lee and Pei-Kuen Wei

Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensing is a real-time and label-free detection technique. To reach the best biosensing performance, sensors with high surface sensitivities and small resonance linewidth are required. We proposed using hot-embossing nanoimprint lithography method to make high-quality metallic nanostructures and Fano coupling mode in capped nanoslit arrays to generate ultrasmall resonance linewidth. The full width at half-maximum bandwidth of the Fano mode is only 3.88 nm. The wavelength sensitivity is 644 nm/RIU for 60-nm-width and 650-nm-period nanoslits. The figure of merit is up to 166. Using the capped nanolsit arrays with multiple periods, the sensing chip can be used for qualitative and quantitative analyses of antigen-antibody interactions. The protein layer attached on the chip can be directly observed and the concentration levels of the analyte can be estimated with naked eyes. Such nanoplasmonic bioschips can benefit sensing applications on point-of-care diagnostics.

Negative Capacitance FET (NCFET) can be viewed as a FET with built-in voltage amplification. The first ALD ferroelectric HfZrO2 based negative-capacitance FinFET with gate length as small as 30 nm was reported in IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM 2015) in Washington, DC USA. Small-signal voltage was amplified by 1.6X maximum at the internal gate with the sub-threshold swing improved from 87 to 55mV/decade. ION increased by >25% for the IOFF.

The rapid increase in demand for computational and signal processing prowess calls for radical and revolutionary advances in reliable, energy-efficient and dense computing architectures. The traditional complementary metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (CMOS) based processors are hardly up to the task because of the excessive energy dissipation that they are burdened with and the fact that CMOS is volatile and thereby inherently incapable of storing data indefinitely. All charge based devices like CMOS are hamstrung by unavoidable (and yet unnecessary) energy dissipation. In digital applications, the digital binary bits 0 and 1 are encoded in two different charge states of the device: more charge in the device represents bit 0 (the transistor in ‘ON’) and less charge in the device represents bit 1 (the transistor is ‘OFF’). Since charge is a scalar quantity with magnitude but no direction, encoding two different bits in charge can only happen if they are encoded in two different magnitudes (or amounts) of charge  and . Every time the device is switched to toggle the stored bit, the amount of charge in the device must be changed, resulting in an average current  to flow through the device if the time taken to switch is. This results in unavoidable energy dissipation  where R is the resistance in the path of the current and . If the transistor is switched faster, the energy dissipation increases. If the transistor is operated in a noisy environment, then maintaining distinction between the bits mandates a larger difference between the amounts of charge , which also increases the dissipation.
