Here are the submission guidelines, and here is a poster you can share with colleagues. If you’ve never been, you should put it […]

SOI Visionary Sorin Cristoloveanu Receives IEEE 2017 Andrew Grove Award

Sorin Cristoloveanu has been named the 2017 recipient of one of the IEEE’s highest honors, the Andrew Grove Award, for his “contributions to silicon-on-insulator technology and thin body devices.” An IEEE Fellow and highly regarded figure in the SOI community, Sorin is the Director of Research at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS […]

SOITEC and UCL boost the RF performance of SOI substrates

Soitec and a team from UCL have been working together to identify the technological opportunities to further improve the high-frequency performance of SOI substrates. Based on the wideband characterization techniques developed at UCL, the RF characteristics of high-resistivity (HR) SOI substrates have been analyzed, modeled and greatly improved in order to meet the specifications of […]

SOI Luminaries Earn Top IEEE Honors

The IEEE is once again giving two of its most prestigious awards to some of the SOI and advanced substrate industry’s leading figures. There are few greater honors in engineering than the IEEE  Technical Field Awards (TFAs). And once again, people who work in advanced substrates are among the recipients of two major awards: the […]

On the Leading Edge

Key advances in transistor research start on SOI. SOI has always been the substrate of choice to explore new silicon device concepts and structures. The full dielectric isolation of the silicon allows one to dismiss the sometimes complex junction isolation schemes used in bulk silicon. The possibility of making devices in thin silicon films has […]
