Research

Present and future electronics are limited by challenges ranging from atomistic understanding of materials, to power dissipation in devices and systems. In this context, our research is geared towards energy-efficient electronics by understanding the interplay between electrical power consumption and heat generation or dissipation in nanoscale devices. We study two-dimensional (2D) materials, as well as oxides and chalcogenides for various types of devices including transistors, resistive memories (memristors), threshold switches, and neuromorphic devices. Some projects are outlined below.

 

Proposed and active projects include:

Doping of 2D materials

RF switches with resistive memory devices

Energy efficiency of phase change memory

Phase transition properties at the nanoscale

Memristive properties of 2D materials for neuromorphic applications

Thermometry of electronic devices
