Elaboration and transfer of tensile strained thin films
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0065
Applying tensile strain in a single semiconductor crystal (eg germanium) is a very promising way to tune it into a direct band gap semiconductor. This basic feature can be applied to major outstanding goals of semiconductor and mainly optoelectronic applications.
A2RAM cell: simulation, modeling and performance evaluation
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0112
The main idea of this PhD work is to simulate, model and optimize A2RAM memory cell. The first part will focus on A2RAM TCAD simulation in order to evaluate the impact of different technological parameters on the figure of merit of the cell. Special attention will be brought to retention time and so, to different leakage mechanisms. The second part of the PhD will be devoted to the A2RAM cell optimization with the introduction of new concept and/or innovant process brick.
Quantitative analysis of mechanical properties in the sub-micron scale of structured polymer materials
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-1018
Polymer-based devices with sub-micronic lateral patterns are increasingly developed for applications, such as organic electronics, conversion and storage of energy (OLED, OPV), but also for medical and biology (implants, Lab-on-Chip, in vitro cell processes) ... In terms of physical and chemical characterization, the development of analytical tools for achieving sub-micronic spatial resolution is needed.
