Hall Amplifier Nanoscale Device (HAND): Modeling, Simulations and Feasibility Analysis for THz Sensor

Nanomaterials (Basel). 2019 Nov 14;9(11):1618. doi: 10.3390/nano9111618.


HAND (Hall Amplifier Nanoscale Device), a new nano-metric device, was designed, simulated, and modeled for feasibility analysis, with the challenge of combining a well-known macro effect into the nanoscale world. HAND is based on the well-known Hall Effect, and it may enable circuitry working at very high frequencies (tens of Tera-Hertz). The architecture, design, and simulations were performed while using Comsol Multi-Physics Package Software. Complementary accurate analytical models were developed to support the understanding of the device functionality, including treatment of specific phenomena, such as heat transfer, and mega-magnet feasibility inside integrated circuits. This new device, combining both the Hall Effect and nanoscale dimensions, holds the potential to change the computing rates in the microelectronics circuitry world, and can serve as a game changer.
