An increasing integration of nanoscale sensors is being observed in BioSensing and Biomimetic systems. Power consumption is deemed a major limiter as the complexity of integration increases. Supply voltage based scaling using CMOS is also a challenge due to increasing leakage currents. This work presents alternative devices - Interband Tunnel Field Effect Transistors and Split-Gate Quantum Nanodots to achieve further scaling.
