Tunnel Field-Effect Transistors (TFETs) are an established concept of complementing or even succeeding conventional transistors to cope with their ever increasing energy dissipation. In practical implementation, however, the exact transport physics in TFETs is still not well understood. My research is mainly directed towards the analysis and modelling of III-V heterojunction TFETs in vertical nanowire architecture. By understanding their transport properties TFETs will get one step closer to industrial implementation and thus to turning from a concept into a technology.
