Nanomaterials studies various kinds of low-dimensional materials for devices. The key focus of this area includes
- advanced materials synthesis
- characterization techniques at the atomic scale, in-situ, and operando;
- emerging devices such as memories for neuromorphic computing;
- low-dimensional materials: quantum dots, nanowires, nanotubes, and two-dimensional materials;
- micro/nanoelectronic devices; carbon-based electronics; nanomaterials for bioelectronics and flexible electronics.
Micro/Nanoelectronics research aims at advanced electronic devices whose functions rely on the structures and phenomena at the microscale and nanoscale. The focused areas include memristors, lasers, phototransistors, imaging devices, bioelectronic sensors, neuromorphic microelectronics, and 2D heterogeneous electronics.
