Prof. Kin Leong Pey
Associate Provost
Singapore University of Technology and Design


The talk will focus on the application of advanced physical and electrical analysis techniques, such as in-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM), conductive atomic force microscopy (CAFM) techniques and state-of-the-art electrooptical probing techniques for in-depth study and characterization of nanoscale semiconductor devices and circuits. These include FINFET technology, emerging non-volatile memory technologies such as RRAM and STT-MRAM, and 2D materials and its potential applications. A new understanding of some of the mechanisms responsible for the fundamental device reliability and lifetime projection will be discussed. Potential opportunities in using such advanced physical and electrical (and possibly combination with optical) techniques in fault isolation in sub-10nm circuits will be shared.
