Summary on Grant Application Form
This 3 year proposal aims to assess the potential of III-V MOSFET digital devices as a solution to challenges in the latter half of the 2001 edition of the International Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS'01). In a unique partnership, several Glasgow research groups working in the areas of semiconductor material growth, nanoanalytic transmission electron microscopy, semiconductor materials transport characterization, semiconductor device modelling, nanofabrication technology and semiconductor device fabrication will work collaboratively with Motorola Inc. In the collaboration, Motorola will transfer proprietary intellectual property to enable Glasgow to rapidly utilise its sub-100 nm transistor technology capability to realise high speed III-V MOSFETs for digital applications. This technology development is the cornerstone to the realisation of an integrated platform enabling the long term convergence of digital, RF and optoelectronic components. This collaboration will propel the UK microelectronics research base onto the global stage, resulting in massively heightened visibility and with the potential to attract future inward investment in this key sector. Further this demonstrates a new model for industrial/academic collaboration enabling maximum exploitation of the core expertise of each organisation.
