About the Speaker
Dr. Yury Illarionov received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from St.-Petersburg State Polytechnical University in 2009 and 2011, respectively. In 2010 he was awarded with Erasmus Mundus scholarship and in 2012 received double M.Sc. degree from Grenoble INP and University of Augsburg within the FAME Master program. In 2015 he received the Ph.D. degrees from Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute and TU Wien. Currently Dr. Yury Illarionov is a full-time postdoc (4th year) at the TU Wien.He contributed to more than 70 research works, including papers in Nature Electronics, ACS Nano and Advanced Functional Materials among others.
Owing to the fascinating properties of 2D crystals, several attempts at fabricating2D devices have been undertaken recently. However, there is still no commercial 2D electronics. Based on my experience, I see that there are two global problems which present a bottleneck on the way from device prototypes to commercial applications. First, there is no scalable technology which would allow to fully exploit the major advantages of 2D materials. Second, the reliability of most available prototypes of 2D devices is comparably poor. Recently I achieved a considerable progress at addressing these issues, and reported MoS2 FETs with record-thin 2nm crystalline CaF2 insulators and superior reliability. However, much efforts are still required to bring these new technologies to the commercial market.
In this talk, I will first introduce myself and summarize my recent findings in several research areas. The main attention will be paid to understanding and improvement of the reliability of different 2D FETs, as well as to scaling of the gate insulator thickness in these devices. Then I will introduce my future research strategy and try to answer the question “How to achieve commercial 2D electronics?”.
