Falling Walls Lab Rhineland 2021
Awards at Falling Walls Lab Rhineland 2021 for Roudy Hanna
Roudy Hanna, Master's student at the Peter Grünberg Institute 9 (PGI-9 Semiconductor Nanoelectronics), took the 2nd place at the Falling Walls Lab Rhineland 2021 in Bonn and also won the audience award. The annual competition is aimed at master's students, doctoral students and postdocs from all disciplines. The participants have to convince the top-class jury of their "Breaking the Wall" idea in only 3 minutes and present how humanity benefits from this idea.

Research Topic

Semiconductor nanowires can be formed directly by using the so-called bottom-up approach. In contrast to the usual top-down method where optical or electron beam lithography is employed, this approach has the potential to simply the fabrication of low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures enormously.

What alternatives are there to present computers based on crystals of silicon or other semiconductors? What is – from a physical point of view – the smallest possible device that can be used to perform computational processes? Is there a minimum amount of energy required for floating point operations?
