Team wins second $10 million award for research in molecular programming

During the past century, programmable technologies evolved from spinning gears and vacuum tubes to transistors and microchips. Now, a group of Caltech researchers and their colleagues at the University of Washington, Harvard University, and UC San Francisco are exploring how biologically important molecules - like DNA, RNA, and proteins - could be the next generation of programmable devices.

Nanotechnology research organizations report new process that paves the way toward increased mobility of beyond 10nm MOS devices

KULeuven, imec and AIST have developed a solid phase epitaxy process to integrate GermaniumTin (GeSn) metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) devices on silicon. For the first time, operation of depletion-mode junctionless GeSn pMOSFET on silicon was demonstrated, an important step toward achieving tensile strain in MOSFET devices, and increasing their mobility.
