Our Skills

  • Physics of nanodevices: out-of-equilibrium transport, quantum effects…
  • Development of modelling tools: particle Monte Carlo simulator, band structures, atomistic Non Equilibrium Green Function simulator
  • New device concepts
  • Materials modelling: structural, electronic, and transport properties of nanostructures

Main research topics

  • Nanoelectronics: beyond CMOS devices on Silicon or III-V heterostructures, quantum dots and graphene based devices.
  • Thermoelectrics: Nanoscale heat transport, coupled electron/phonon transport and thermoelectric devices for energy harvesting.
  • Nanodesign: novel design approaches for low power computation using artificial synapses.
