Imec FinFET to Vertical Nanowire FET Movie

Here is a cool video from Imec showing the transition from FinFET via horizontal Nanowires to ultimately vertical Nanowire channel transistors. The movie and the whole article is available in the Imec monthly magazine on page 6 (!preferred/1/package/69/pub/75/page/6)

"Driven by the growing demand for increased communication and increased mobile and server data traffic, CMOS technologies will require continuous innovations in the field of ultra-low power operation, performance and density scaling. And this at an affordable cost. In this movie, we visualize the evolution of a FinFET architecture into the next technology generations: from tall Si fins and source/drain stressors over "
