The research and education area of the Integrated Systems Laboratory (IIS) is microelectronics, optoelectronics and nanotechnologies in general as an interdisciplinary field between electrical engineering and physics. The scientific work includes analysis, design and test of integrated circuits, theory, numerical modeling and physical characterization of semiconductor technologies and devices, and furthermore analysis and simulations of bio-electromagnetic systems.
The IIS staff includes four professors, ten research associates and postdocs, fifty PhD students and ten collaborators in computer system management, administration and technology. The research activities are within research projects of the European Union, and the Swiss funding agencies such as KTI or SNF and within scientific cooperations with industry in Switzerland, Europe and overseas.
The Integrated Systems Laboratory is a research and education unit in the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich).
