Reliability and Radiation Effects on Advanced CMOS Technologies



Our group offers excellent opportunities for challenging theses on a number of different subjects. And if you want to become a Ph.D. student, we are always looking for talented young people, who enjoy science and research.

The best way to start working with the RREACT group is to get to know our research. But before you do that, you need to be familiar with the basics of radiation effects and advanced CMOS. In this website you'll find many tutorials to help you with that.

Our work consists of several different tasks, in which you can be involved according to your will and inclinations:

  • measuring the degradation induced by electrical stress and radiation on advanced CMOS devices
  • performing irradiation on electronic components with a variety of sources, including advanced particle accelerators.
  • developing physical models of degradation and radiation effects
  • developing software for predicting the sensitivity of complex circuits
  • developing hardening-by-design solutions to be used in Field Programmable Gate Arrays
  • designing printed circuit boards for radiation experiments

For an overview of the currently available theses, contact professor Paccagnella.





The time needed for an experimental thesis is about six months.

Shorter theses are available also for "Lauree triennali"
