In this project, the student is expected to do TCAD modeling of a newly proposed semiconductor device named integrated long- and short-term memory device (iLSTM). iLSTM is proposed to have independently configurable long- and short-term memory in a single three terminal device. Such devices are useful in analog non-linear dynamics-based reservoir computing, a type of brain-inspired computing that is extremely energy efficient compared to the state-of-the-art models.

In this project, a student with some semiconductor background would be ideal. Fabrication experience is not necessary but understanding of the device physics of the common semiconductor devices such as transistors, memristors is highly desired. Some TCAD modeling experience with Sentaurus or similar tools is a plus but not required. Some python/MATLAB programming experience might be necessary.
