The goal of this project is to investigate and optimize the electrical performance of existing devices, devising and investigating novel new devices (e.g.,nanoelectronic devices). Investigation of these devices through electrical characterization, limited physical characterization, and modeling will enable a better understanding of their limitation and potential. The information produced in this project will push the limits of the current state-of-the-art in electronics.

An example of this research includes, but is not limited to, the investigation of oxide semiconductors by investigating changes in electrical device performance due to changes in device fabrication. Components that could be studied are possible passivation needs, improvements in ohmic, Schottky contact formation, etc.
