While the hegemony of Silicon integrated circuits (ICs) will undoubtedly last into the foreseeable future, human curiosity continues to produce a broad array of efforts to develop new ways of doing electronics to reach beyond what silicon ICs are capable of. Along this line of intellectual spirit, my PhD research examined the following topics that join circuits with condensed matter physics, statistical physics, and material science:
- GHz~THz plasmonics using one-dimensional nanoscale devices;
- Stochastic and statistical physics of electrical circuits;
- Electrical Soliton Oscillator
- Stretchable microfluidic radio-frequency antenna.
My general research interests lie in the transformative area of emerging circuits and devices. By exploiting particular physical and biological phenomena, I plan to develop new forms of electronic circuits and systems beyond silicon integrated circuits, for fundamental scientific pursuits and technological breakthroughs that can enhance our lives and propel our economy. Specifically, I will build upon my dual training in EE and physics to develop:
