Sara Fathipour presented her achievement of a low leakage gate-stack on WSe2 using titanyl phthalocyanine functionalization at the Device Research Conference at Ohio State on June 23, 2015. This work was a collaboration with UC San Diego. (July 2015)
Dr. Yoshiyuki Kondo joined Notre Dame as a visiting researcher from Toshiba, Kawasaki, Japan on May 15, 2015.
Hao Lu's universal tunnel FET device model was published in Solid State Electronics in January 2015. It is available on the NEEDs website (Nano-Engineered Electronic Device Simulation Node) on the Purdue nanoHUB and in the SPICE simulator AIMSPICE by Trond Ytterdal. (July 2015)
Buchanan Bourdon (Notre Dame) and Patrick Foley (University College Cork, Ireland) were awarded NDnano Undergraduate Research Fellowships to work with Dr. Seabaugh's group this summer. Buchanan is continuing his work on simulating ion-electron transport using COMSOL Multiphysics software; Patrick's research is focused on the automation of testing devices on wafers using a Cascade auto-prober, in conjunction with two software programs: Nucleus and Wavevue. (May 2014)
Susan Fullerton and Alan Seabaugh have been awarded $368,000 as part of the NSF's GOALI program. They propose a new device that relies on the movement of ions to control electron transport in graphene. A main focus of the study is the exploration of new 2D materials through which the ions can move. (July 2014) More
