IEEE Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits

Special Topic on “Physics-based modeling and simulation of materials, devices and circuits of beyond-CMOS logic and memory technologies for energy efficient computing.”


Guest Editors

Aims and Scope
Standard Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) technology and its advanced flavors in the form of FinFETs have propelled the electronic industry to its extraordinary success. While the CMOS technology may continue to deliver its remarkably powerful performance to next-generation computing platforms, it is quite clear that in the longer term, it has major challenges in scaling, suffers from power consumption and power density limitations and may not be amenable to the new demands of the emerging applications. This will require beyond-CMOS technologies to step in and augment CMOS. Whether it is the design of energy efficient scalable switches for logic design, or non-volatile memory, or the integration of memory and logic functionalities for general-purpose computers and application-specific accelerators, the need for the application of quantum materials to realize these new microelectronic devices has surged.

Webinar for IEEE Region 8 NTC YPs

Date: 8th March 2023 RESCHEDULED:  15th March 2023
Time: 12:00 PM (GMT +1)
Panelist: Dr. Antigone Marino 
Title: “Inside Out the Comfort Zone

Register below. Free.


* Have you ever tried to identify the limits of your comfort zone?
* The comfort zone is a behavioral state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviors to deliver a steady level of performance, usually without a sense of risk.
* Often, without realizing it, we are the ones that somehow limit our professional growth.
* Entering and leaving the comfort zone is an art, that can often become a game to grow professionally!


Dr. Antigone Marino is a researcher at the Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems (CNR-ISASI). She received her master in Physics in 2000, and the research doctorate in New Technologies in 2004, both at the Physical Science Department of Federico II University of Naples. Her research activities are focused on soft matter optics, ellipsometry and structured light.

Thanks to her experience in science, she has set up a course for PhD students on professional development, ranging from the topics of soft skills to scientific communication, passing through social media, outreach and all the non-technical aspects necessary in scientific professions.

    The prime focus of the IEEE NAP-2023 is on nanoscale materials with emphasis on interdisciplinary research exploring and exploiting their unique physical and chemical proprieties for practical applications. Although nanoscience and nanotechnology are still in their infancy, this rapidly evolving field of research is quickly transforming almost all aspects of our everyday life. From the low power electronics and supercomputers to advanced drugs and personalized medicine, from new industrial applications and renewable energy to advanced transportation and clean air technologies, nanoscience is the foundation of many transformational discoveries in the decades to come.
