New Materials for Three Dimensional Ferroelectric Microelectronics

Tuesday, November 9, 2021; 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Eastern US time

The ACerS Energy Materials and Systems Division is hosting the New Materials for Three Dimensional Ferroelectric Microelectronics webinar presented by Dr. Susan Trolier-McKinstry (The Pennsylvania State University). In the last decade, there have been major changes in the families of ferroelectric materials available for integration with CMOS electronics.  These new materials, including Hf1-xZrxO2, Al1-xScxN, Al1-xBxN and Zn1-xMgxO, offer the possibility of new functionalities. This talk will discuss the possibility of exploiting the 3rd dimension in microelectronics for functions beyond interconnects, enabling 3D non-von Neumann computer architectures exploiting ferroelectrics for local memory, logic in memory, digital/analog computation, and neuromorphic functionality.


Susan Trolier-McKinstry is an Evan Pugh University Professor and Steward S. Flaschen Professor of Ceramic Science and Engineering, and Professor of Electrical Engineering.  Her main research interests include thin films for dielectric and piezoelectric applications.  She directs both the Center for Dielectrics and Piezoelectrics and the Center for Three-Dimensional Ferroelectric Microelectronics. She isa member of the National Academy of Engineering, a fellow of the American Ceramic Society, IEEE, and the Materials Research Society, and an academician of the World Academy of Ceramics. She currently serves as an associate editor for Applied Physics Letters.  She was 2017 President of the Materials Research Society; previously she served as president of the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control Society, as well as Keramos.
