As I said in my blog yesterday, Feb. In honor of this celebration, Fellow Kelin Kuhn is sharing her thoughts on what it takes to be an inventor. In her role as the 45nm device group leader, she was deeply involved in helping to deliver one of Intel's biggest leaps in processor technology in decades. This formula improves processor performance and reduces leakage. Through this invention, Intel was able to continue to deliver on Moore's Law, enabling consumers and business users to enjoy smaller, more powerful and energy-efficient laptops and PCs, and servers whose power consumption doesn't break IT budgets. I stopped not because I had no time to read --although that was somewhat true as well --but because our work on 45nm Hi-k metal gate silicon technology made science fiction seem boring in contrast.

Kelin J. Kuhn

She is responsible for research on new device architectures and has been awarded two Intel Achievement Awards, one for high-k metal-gate and one for Trigate , as well as the IEEE Paul Rappaport Award CMOS and Beyond. Get up to speed with the future of logic switch design with this indispensable overview of the most promising successors to modern CMOS transistors. Learn how to overcome existing design challenges using novel device concepts, presented using an in-depth, accessible, tutorial-style approach. Drawing on the expertise of leading researchers from both industry and academia, and including insightful contributions from the developers of many of these alternative logic devices, new concepts are introduced and discussed from a range of different viewpoints, covering all the necessary theoretical background and developmental context. Covering cutting-edge developments with the potential to overcome existing limitations on transistor performance, such as tunneling field-effect transistors TFETs , alternative charge-based devices, spin-based devices, and more exotic approaches, this is essential reading for academic researchers, professional engineers, and graduate students working with semiconductor devices and technology.

In , after a decade at the University of Washington, Kuhn left her tenured position as an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering to join Intel. Why leave a coveted job with the freedom to work on anything she wanted? Kuhn uses an analogy to explain the move. I need to go to a new chapter. It used to be, Kuhn explained, that a kid could tear apart a consumer electronic device — a radio, for example — and the function of every piece could be understood. That experience largely dropped out of the culture by the time she started her faculty position in due to the widespread use of integrated circuits, which made the underlying technology all but invisible.
