A research group led by MANA Scientist Dr. Minoru Osada and MANA Principal Investigator Dr. Takayoshi Sasaki of the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics , National Institute for Materials Science, developed new doping technique which enables fine tuning of chemical composition and structure in oxide nanocrystals.
Such a doping, a well-known technique in bulk materials, is now useful for designing high-k properties of individual nanocrystals. Our work provides a new recipe for designing nanodielectrics desirable for future capacitor and memory devices.
This research was carried out as a part of the Core Research for Evolutional Science and Technology (CREST) project “Creation of New Nanomaterials and Manufacturing Processes for Next-Generation Electronics using Inorganic Nanosheets” (Project Leader: Takayoshi Sasaski) in Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
