  • Publication number: 20240113212
    Abstract: Technologies for a field effect transistor (FET) with a ferroelectric gate dielectric are disclosed. In an illustrative embodiment, a perovskite stack is grown on a buffer layer as part of manufacturing a transistor. The perovskite stack includes one or more doped semiconductor layers alternating with other lattice-matched layers, such as undoped semiconductor layers. Growing the doped semiconductor layers on lattice-matched layers can improve the quality of the doped semiconductor layers. The lattice-matched layers can be preferentially etched away, leaving the doped semiconductor layers as fins for a ribbon FET. In another embodiment, an interlayer can be deposited on top of a semiconductor layer, and a ferroelectric layer can be deposited on the interlayer. The interlayer can bridge a gap in lattice parameters between the semiconductor layer and the ferroelectric layer.

  • Publication number: 20240113220
    Abstract: Technologies for a transistor with a thin-film ferroelectric gate dielectric are disclosed. In the illustrative embodiment, a transistor has a thin layer of scandium aluminum nitride (ScxAl1-xN) ferroelectric gate dielectric. The channel of the transistor may be, e.g., gallium nitride or molybdenum disulfide. In one embodiment, the ferroelectric polarization changes when voltage is applied and removed from a gate electrode, facilitating switching of the transistor at a lower applied voltage. In another embodiment, the ferroelectric polarization of a gate dielectric of a transistor changes when the voltage is past a positive threshold value or a negative threshold value. Such a transistor can be used as a one-transistor memory cell.

  • Patent number: 11914853
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for configuring automatic playback settings on a media playback device. A graphical user interface displays automatic playback settings and receives selections of customized settings for automatic playback. The settings can include context granularity for automatic playback, limiting autoplay to when the media playback device is connected to a wireless network, and activating an audible notification when automatic playback of media content is beginning. An initial queue of media content is selected for playback on the media playback device. The system ascertains whether autoplay is enabled for a particular situation. If autoplay is enabled, the system automatically generates a queue of media that is related to the initial queue and initiates playback on the media playback device after the initial queue concludes.

  • Publication number: 20220381986
    Abstract: A method of forming an optical bridge waveguide between an optical element and an optical waveguide layer fabricated on a substrate such as a PIC platform. An optical element is heterogeneously integrated on the substrate. A first dielectric layer is deposited on the substrate and etched to a predetermined height. A second dielectric layer having a higher k than the first dielectric layer is deposited on the first dielectric layer, and a third dielectric layer having a lower k than the second dielectric layer is deposited on the second dielectric layer. The dielectric layers are formed such that the second dielectric layer provides an optical bridge waveguide between the optical element and optical waveguide layer, with the first and third dielectric layers providing a lower and upper cladding, respectively, for the optical bridge waveguide.
