Properties and devices at the nanoscale.


This research area conducts basic and applied research of spintronic, optoelectronic, bioelectronic, and nanoelectronic devices and materials for future applications in information processing, high speed high density electronics, and bio, chemical, and radiation sensing. One reason to study nanoelectronics is to understand how to process, transmit and store information by taking advantage of the properties of matter present at the nanoscale that are distinctly different from macroscopic properties. We attempt to exploit any new physical phenomena related to the reduction in size of structures to the nanoscale for these purposes.
