Electronics Theory

From atoms ... to devices ... to systems.
Ms. Lida Ansari won the BOC Gases Ireland Postgraduate Bursary for 2011-12. Mr Gerry Donovan, BOC Director presented the award to Lida at a ceremony in Tyndall on Thursday 21st June 2012, which was also attended by Dr. Alastair Glass, Chairman of the Board and Acting CEO. Lida won for her pioneering work on the simulation of junctionless nanowire transistors.

Materials Science for Technology

In Electronics Theory, we apply technology computer aided design (TCAD) tools to advanced problems in microelectronics and nanotechnologies.

Computational methods from electronics, chemistry and physics are applied to the design and analysis of nanoelectronic devices and  integrated circuit manufacturing. Increasingly our applications in electronics have focused on sub-5nm transistors and technologically relevant interfaces. Investigation of transistors on a few nanometre scale has led us to understand how electrons behave in quasi-1 dimenionsal systems and for molecular electronics.  Exploring the use of novel oxides for electronics applications has spawned studies in the related fields of photovoltaics and catalysis, and similarly our work on molecular dynamics have enabled studies of interactions of bio-materials with surfaces leading to applications for medical devices and diagnostics.

Our research often leads us to investigation of physics and chemistry at length and time scales that remain largely unexplored. Thus our research also aims to contribute to the fundamental understanding of material systems, and to develop computational methods for treating advanced problems in engineering and science.
