Opportunities for 5nm Node CMOS Technology and Beyond
Bruce Doris started in the field of semiconductor device research at Sematech and the Advanced
Products Research and Development Laboratory at Motorola while studying Applied Physics and
Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. Soon after joining IBM Bruce joined the Exploratory Device Group in the Research Division where he made key innovations in the areas of Local Mechanical Stress for channel mobility enhancement and Advanced Device architectures including FDSOI and FinFETs. In 2007 he established the Advanced Device and Integration Group at the Albany Nano Technology Center and went on to create the Pathfinding Alliance to deliver performance boosters and advanced device options for IBM and partners. He led a multi-company international team to define and deliver FDSOI Technology to Development and Production Fabs. Bruce has authored or co-authored over 100 papers and holds well over 450 issued US patents. Today Bruce’s research interests include radiation effects in advanced devices, alternate channel materials for FDSOI and FinFETs and device architectures for beyond the 7nm node and more recently exploratory memories, bio sensors and cognitive computing.
