Project Description

Electronics are ubiquitous in today’s world, with applications ranging from smart cities to health care, defense, economy, government, education, research, and entertainment. While the computing demands of these applications are ever increasing, the capabilities of electronics have hit fundamental limitations in energy and have plateaued. Our research involves a holistic approach towards solving this energy crisis, starting from exploration of beyond-Silicon nanomaterial technology (such as atomically thin materials), to in-depth understanding of the physics of fundamentally different device-working mechanisms (such as Quantum devices, Spintronics, Neuromorphic ) and finally, experimental demonstration of novel, highly energy-efficient and scalable electronic devices. The urop can be involved in both simulation, design, building as well as characterization of the devices.
