Cryoelectronics and Systems

Cryoelectronics and Systems

We currently have testing capabilities to take samples to a temperature of ~11K and are in the process of acquiring two systems that will allow us to go below a temperature of 4K. We use temperature as a “big knob” in experiments on materials such as CNT, ZnO and GaN to help us understand charge transport through these materials. In addition to...

Reworkable Micro & Nano Interconnects

Reworkable Micro & Nano Interconnects

We are exploring the use of different micro and nano structures for use as reworkable contact and interconnect structures. We characterize the power integrity characteristics of large arrays of these structures. Goals for this aspect are to be able to get 100’s of A through arrays of these structures with minimal power loss. We also characterize the signal...

Printed and Solution-Based Electronics

We are exploring multiple methods to realize printed (ink-jet) and solution-based electronics. As one example, we are developing carbon nanotube inks, using a variety of surfactants (with the help of Dr. Virginia Davis in AU Chemical Engineering): These, and other inks will be used in our Dimatix materials printer: A further example is that of...

SI / PI

SI / PI

We are performing detailed work on delivering RF and microwave energy efficiently and cleanly to densely integrated systems. We have a very capable set of signal integrity / power integrity (SI / PI) simulation and measurement tools (up to 110GHz & > 28Gbps…see equipment page). With this set of tools, we can simulate the performance of advanced...
