Nanoelectronics, Nanomaterials and Multiferroics

Nanoelectronics, Nanomaterials and Multiferroics

The group focuses on research programmes in developing advanced functional materials based on the emerging nanotechnology and nanoscience field. Research in nanoelectronics includes developing new nanofabrication methods for semiconductor applications, reliability study of copper interconnect systems & packaging technology and synthesizing electronic materials.

New schemes for synthesizing advanced materials such as rare earth nanoparticles, plasmonic nanomaterials, carbon-based materials, one dimensional nanostructures, thermoelectric materials and multiferroics are also being actively investigated. The development of this group’s research has the potential application in sensing, green energy, environmental remediation, data storage, high-speed communications, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and medical diagnostics.

The research group collaborates actively with Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology, Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, Northwestern University, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of California, Berkeley, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Laboratoire CRISMAT (France).
