Andreas Schenk received the Dipl. Phys. degree and the Ph.D. from Humboldt University in Berlin (HUB) in 1981 and 1987, respectively. From 1987 till 1991 he was working on var- ious aspects of the physics and simulation of optoelectronic devices. In 1991 he joined the Integrated Systems Laboratory (ISL) of ETH Zurich as a senior research/teaching assistant, where he qualified to give lectures at university in 1997 for ”Physics and Modeling of Microelectronic Devices”. In 2004 he became honorary professor at the ISL and is heading the Device Physics Group since then. The focus of his research is on the physics-based modeling of micro- and nanoelectronic devices, such as quantum effects in ultra-short transistors, the physics and simulation of single-electron devices, many-body effects, contacts, hetero-junctions, degradation effects, as well as transport processes like resonant and sequential tunneling, generation-recombination processes, and noise. His occupa- tional activities involve contacts to leading electronics com- panies like IBM, AMD, Toshiba, ST, and many others. His group was involved in the development of the device simula- tor DESSIS (now S-Device from Synopsys) and also developed various in-house tools for semiconductor micro- and nanode- vices like a simulator for single-electron transistors and bal- listic MOSFETs, a full-band Monte Carlo package based on moments of the inverse scattering operator of the Boltzmann equation, and a Non-equilibrium Green’s Function package for nano-scale transistors. He authored and co-authored two books and 150 papers. He is member of the German Physical Society.
