New CMOS-Compatible Materials for Efficient Infrared Light-Absorption and Emission

March 14 @ 11:30 am - 1:15 pm PDT

Quantum Semiconductor has invented atomistically-ordered superlattices made of Group IV elements (C, Si, Ge, Sn, Pb) strained to silicon surfaces, that have direct bandgaps across the infrared spectrum, and that can be monolithically integrated with CMOS.
This approach overcomes the limitations of pure silicon devices – sensing light outside the visible range of wavelengths, and light emission. Also, the photon collection process is decoupled from CMOS junction engineering, thereby allowing these devices to track Moore’s Law with each new design generation, as well as use the most advanced substrates for state-of-the-art CMOS such as fully depleted thin-film SOI. This CMOS-compatible technology platform enables innovative new products for IR image sensing, photonics, and AI.
Carlos Augusto, Ph.D., is a co-founder and the Chief Technology Officer of Quantum Semiconductor. A prolific inventor, he is responsible for Quantum Semiconductor’s core technology. Dr. Augusto has been in the semiconductor industry for over 25 years. Previously, he was at IMEC in Leuven, Belgium where he was a member of the research staff in the Advanced Silicon Devices Group and worked on the device, process, modeling and fabrication of SiGe Vertical MOSFETs and DRAMs.
