IMEC looks to strained silicon and germanium on insulator IMEC has launched two industrial affiliation programmes (IIAPs) targeting sub-45nm processes. The first programme aims at improving device performance by implementing strained silicon (Si) in the transistor channel for scaled planar MOS devices. The second will exploit the high-mobility features of germanium (Ge) to fabricate high-performance CMOS transistors. The programmes are inter-linked with IMEC's present advanced CMOS research programmes.
