This book offers a comprehensive review of the state of the art in innovative Beyond-CMOS nanodevices for developing novel functionalities, logic and memories dedicated to researchers, engineers and students.

It focuses on the interest of nanostructures and nanodevices (nanowires, small slope switches, 2D layers, nanostructured materials, etc.) for advanced More than Moore (RF-nanosensors-energy harvesters, on-chip electronic cooling, etc.) and Beyond-CMOS logic and memory applications. The convergence of More Moore and Beyond-CMOS, on the one hand, and the merging of More than Moore and Beyond-CMOS, on the other hand, have been widely studied in the scientific literature over recent years. This book provides a detailed review of the most recent advances in these fields which have gained a strong momentum for many applications.

The second of two books on this subject, it is primarily intended for societies, organizations and companies working in the micro/nanoelectronics and micro/nanosystems fields.

About the authors/editors

Francis Balestra joined LPCS (Laboratory of Physics of Semiconductor Devices), Grenoble INP, France in 1982, where he was involved in research on the study, characterization, modeling, and simulation of the first fully depleted silicon-on-insulator and fully inverted multi-gate MOS transistors. He now works at IMEP (Institute of Microelectronics, Electromagnetism and Photonics), also at Grenoble INP in France, and has co-authored over 150 publications in international scientific journals, 250 communications at international conferences (more than 70 invited papers and review articles), and 30 books or individual chapters.
