Abstract:

Group-IV superlattices can achieve high efficiency light absorption and emission. Quantum Semiconductor’s technology platform has multiple applications in markets that use light-sensing and imaging across all wavelengths, including Ultra-Violet, Visible, and Infra-Red. Potential applications include:
CMOS Image Sensors for Visible and Multispectral imaging, from UV to LWIR.
Optical/photonic receivers and interconnects for computing and communications.
LiDAR photodetectors.
Advanced Vertical MOSFETs, suitable for channel lengths smaller than 10 nm.
High-performance HBTs (heterojunction bipolar transistors).
High efficiency silicon-based solar cells, integrated with CMOS.

Quantum Semiconductor’s approach is fundamentally different from the typical sensor manufactured today. The technology platform consists of atomic-layer engineered Group-IV (C, Si, Ge, Sn, Pb) superlattices, combined with novel semiconductor device architectures. This approach overcomes the limitations of 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.

Dr. Carlos Augusto

Dr. Augusto 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. After IMEC, Dr. Augusto was recruited by Rockwell Semiconductor in Newport Beach, California and moved to the United States where he was in the Advanced Process Development Group and worked on device and process integration architecture development.

Carlos has a BSc. in Physics from the Instituto Superior Técnico, Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal, M.S. in Physics of Microelectronics and Materials Science, and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering with a specialty in device physics from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium. He is the author or co-author of 32 granted and 2 pending US patents, covering Advanced CMOS devices and fabrication architectures, SiGeC Photo-Diodes and CMOS pixel designs and image-sensors, Group-IV superlattices and optoelectronic devices incorporating them, solar cells, etc.
