100GHz Digitial Logic using Cyrogenically Cooled CMOS

In this project, we are seeking to design radically high performance digital logic using cryogenic cooling of chips built in commercial CMOS technologies. By using custom circuits and architectures tailored to low temperature operation, we can reach clock frequencies beyond 100GHz. Using such high-speed logic, applications like direct digital synthesis of RF waveforms are possible. This technology will open up a number of new application areas.
