  • Innovation in higher education: Specificity of the microelectronics field

    The expected development of connected objects appears as a key factor of the future worldwide economy. The field of microelectronics is primarily concerned by this evolution because the connected objects involve the microelectronics industry and related research. In addition, the spectrum of the application domains can be very wide and the multidisciplinary approach appears mandatory. In parallel, the evolution of the microelectronics towards a larger integration implies new designs, and new technologies that must be assimilated by the students. The main challenge, today, is to give to these students and future engineers, the methodology and the know-how that can insure an innovative approach, by changing the educational structures and the behavior of the professorial body, while in the same time, the education systems want to massively introduce numerical tools. As a result, the introduction of new practices and laboratory works becomes increasingly useful, more especially in microelectronics. Indeed, this is a way to give to the students the knowledge and the know-how with an innovative behavior. However, the practice on microelectronic platforms is very expensive and the sharing of this equipment between several institutions is necessary. The French national network, CNFM (National Coordination for Education in Microelectronics and nanotechnologies), which pilots the 12 national platforms, tries to answer to these needs and has set-up a policy deliberately focused on innovative practices on dedicated platforms. Several suggestions are given in order to improve the educational system and create a model which could be duplicated in many other countries.

This growth has led to an urgent need for local microelectronics education opportunities at the associate, bachelor, and graduate levels. In 1995, an AAS program in Semiconductor Technology was created at BSU. Then, with strong support from local industry (particularly Micron Technology), the State of Idaho transformed what had been a satellite engineering program from University of Idaho, Moscow ID into a new School of Engineering at Boise State. BS degree programs in Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical engineering were established, a nationwide search for a new faculty was performed, and classes began in August 1996. Microelectronics is the clear focus of BSU's new program, with four of the new faculty specializing in this area.

    The MicroElectronics Cloud Alliance (MECA) is a European funded project where 18 higher education institutions, and small and medium enterprises, sited in nine different European countries, have the aim of developing a Cloud-based European infrastructure for improving the education in microelectronics. In MECA open educational resources, educational and professional software, remote access to virtual laboratories are shared, all based on modules and learning facilities remotely available. MECA wants to be the one-stop platform of reference for the microelectronics education and the useful tool for sharing resources among institutes working in microelectronics design training. In fact, thanks to the Cloud system built inside MECA Consortium, the resources of all the partners are shared, both hardware and software, excluding licensing of course, for clear legal reasons.

  • Synthesis of CNT-SnO<inf>2</inf> and CNT-In<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> films for micro sensor application using vacuum microelectronics technology

    CNT-SnO2 and CNT-In2O3 composite materials were prepared for micro sensor application. Micro sensors with CNT-SnO2 and CNT-In2O3 films were designed and fabricated using microelectronics technology on the silicon substrate prefabricated with Pt electrodes and heater. Gas sensing properties of the sensors were tested against combustible gases, such as H2, CO, CH4, C3H8, and NO2, which are common pollutant in the air. The CNT-SnO2 and CNT-In2O3 composites showed higher sensitivity and selectivity to H2, NO2 and CO respectively. The present gas sensors are low energy consuming portable sensor module that can be mass-produced applying the synthesized nano gas sensing materials using vacuum microelectronics technology.

  • Carbon nanotube structures-a new material of vacuum microelectronics

    The presented results prove that carbon nanotube structures can serve as a new material for vacuum microelectronics being highly effective emitters.

  • Non-heated electron source for vacuum microelectronics devices

    Production of efficient cold cathodes able to operate under rugged conditions is a key technology to realize vacuum microelectronics devices. A metal- insulator-metal system with certain thicknesses of a top electrode and insulator is in principle suited to these requirements. The fact that arrays of MIM structures can be readily obtained on large-area glass substrates gives grounds to continue work on developing an emitter array for emitter applications. The simplicity of design and fabrication technique is another advantage offered by MIM cathodes. Considering the fact that their response time is less than 10/sup -8/ s and operating pressure is about 10/sup -5/ torr, MIM cathodes are quite competitive with other types of non-heated emitters. Studies on overcoming the two main disadvantages of these emitters, low values of efficiency (/spl sim/0.5 mA/W) and a lifetime are in progress now. This work is devoted to studies on the mechanism of electroforming of MIM cathodes and increasing efficiency and lifetime of these emitters.

  • A new type of vacuum microelectronics flat panel camera tube

    This new Vacuum Microelectronics (VME) Flat Panel Camera tube (FPC) VME-FPC, made by the same techniques used in Microtip Flat Panel Display (FPD), has been formed upon the baseplate and the faceplate, the baseplate made from the Field Emission Array (FEA) and the gates, the faceplate made from the photoconductive layer and the transparent conductive layer. The VME-FPC works when the electrons emitted from a Field Emitter Array (FEA) scan a photoconductive layer under the control of a clock. This VME-FPC offers many advantages: simple structure inside the tube, high resolution, high sensitivity, low tube volume, low energy consumption and long life, etc. We predict that the application of this type of FPC will have broad applications in high definition TV, video communication, medical apparatus and instruments.

  • The advantages of n-type heavily-doped silicon as an emitter for vacuum microelectronics
