Abstract: In recent years, significant progress has been achieved in exploring electronics applications of two-dimensional monolayer materials. Monolayer represents the ultimate limit of body thickness in a transistor structure, and it is free from body thickness variability and interface dangling bonds. Its mechanical bendability promises interesting applications in flexible and wearable electronics. Furthermore, two-dimensional materials and their heterojunctions possess properties not available in their conventional semiconductor counterparts. To translate the new material properties to device technologies, device modeling and simulation play an important role in understanding experiments, assessing technology potential, and optimizing device designs.
In this talk, I will first overview the challenges of modeling electron devices made from nanomaterials. Two examples of devices based on two-dimensional semiconductors will then be highlighted. In the first one, anisotropic carrier transport in black phosphorene will be examined to understand their potential in logic and RF transistor applications. In the second example, device physics and design options of monolayer heterojunction photodiodes and tunneling field-effect transistors will be discussed, which promise ultra steep subthreshold swing and low power dissipation.
