Electrical Characterization and Reliability

Novel Characterization Development

  • Involved the measurement and evaluation of transistors and capacitors of experimental gate stacks and device structures (alternative gate electrodes, ultra-thin oxides, oxynitrides, and high-dielectric constant insulators, non-planar devices, and high mobility substrates)
  • Engaged in the electrical characterization and reliability of projected material and device architectures below the 22 nm node as defined by the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) as well as other future device architectures, which can call for high-k dielectrics and high mobility and/or flexible substrate material systems

Research Interests

  • Electrical Characterization Methodologies
  • Reliability Characterization Methodologies
  • Solid State Device Physics
  • Electrical properties of materials
  • MOS modeling (quantum effects, etc.)
  • Nanotechnology
  • Flexible Electronics 
  • Future Energy Needs (Renewable, low power operation, etc.)
