Dr. Martin Claus: Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Martin Claus

Martin Claus received his Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering in 2004 and 2011 from the Technische Universit ̈at Dresden (Germany). During his doctoral research, he investigated carbon nanotube field-effect transistors (FETs) with emphasis on modeling and simulation. His research interests include compact modeling and technology comparisons of nanoscale FETs using numerical device simulation, physical analysis, and electrical characterization as well as network theory.

In 2004 he joined the Chair for Electron Devices and Integrated Circuits at TU Dresden as a research and teaching assistant. In 2006 he started a new research topic on modeling and simulation of carbon nanotube transistors (CNTFETs). Since then he has supervised and guided more than 12 Dipl.-Ing. theses, student research projects and student assistants. The related effort has resulted in an effective-mass Schrödinger-Poisson solver and a Boltzmann transport solver for CNTFETs, both of which have intensively been used for device design studies and compact model development. It also resulted in a first version of a working compact model for single and multi-tube CNTFETs, which has been used for analog circuit design. He has authored and coauthored more than 30 peer-reviewed journal publications and conference papers. He also has served as reviewer for IEEE Trans. on Electron Devices, IEEE Trans. on Microwave Theory and Techniques, Physica Status Solidi RRL and International Journal of Numerical Modelling: Electronic Networks, Devices and Fields.

In 2004 and 2012, respectively, he received a DAAD scholarship for an academic exchange with Universidad de Sevilla, Spain and Universidade de Brasília (UNB), Brazil, respectively. In his time at UNB he intensified the collaboration with UNB in the field of CNTFET modeling. Very recently, a joint 3-year research project of Martin Claus and UNB financed by the Ministry of Education in Brazil (CAPES) in the field of modeling and characterization of organic transistors has been granted including regular research visits of Martin Claus in Brazil.

Since the beginning of 2013 he has been group leader of the device modeling group for emerging electronics within the recently granted German excellence cluster ”Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed)”. His main responsibility is the development and coordination of a multi-scale simulation frameworks for emerging electronic devices within an interdisciplinary group of physicist, chemists and electrical engineers.
