|Title:||The Integration of Molecular Electronic Devices with Traditional CMOS Technologies|
|Published:||August 28, 2008|
|Abstract:||This work describes the development of hybrid circuits composed of silicon-based molecular electronic devices and traditional CMOS technology. In the development of these circuits, we first fabricated individual CMOS-compatible molecular electronic devices and established their effectiveness. We then designed and used traditional VLSI tools to layout a hybrid circuit that includes CMOS for the on-chip characterization of the molecular devices, as well as a platform composed of the contacts and interconnects for the molecular electronic devices. Finally, we developed the procedures for the post-processing fabrication of the molecular electronic devices using CMOS-compatible techniques. This work is an important step towards the realization of hybrid molecular/traditional circuits, both for advancing novel 'beyond CMOS' molecular electronic technology, but also for enabling hybrid circuits for the on-chip characterization of the molecular electronic devices via CMOS instrumentation.|
