Adrian M. Ionescu is an Associate Professor at Ecole Polytechnique F
The Nanoelectronic Devices group (NANOLAB) is working on research subjects in the field of micro/nano-electronics with special emphasis on silicon technology, design and modelling of nanoscale solid-state devices (including small subthreshold swing devices, multi-gate FETs, silicon nanowire FETs), Radio Frequency MEMS devices for in- and above-IC (silicon resonators, vibrating body FETs as active resonators, CNT resonators and passives, phase shifteres for 3D integration). Among recent energy efficient device concepts invented in the lab are small swing Suspended Gate - FET switch and memory, the high mobility bent nanowire transistor, the vibrating FET (active MEM resonator) and the ferroelectric FET with subthermal swing. Our new device concepts are regularly reported at the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM). The lab has 10 US or international patent applications in the last 5 years.
More recently the group extended his resaerch activities in the field of novel nanomaterials for sensing and Radio Frequency (Carbon nanotubes) and novel device principles for efficient energy harvesting.
