PhD Electrical & Computer Science Northwestern University June 1983

Research Statement:
Carbon nanoelectronics, based on carbon nanotubes and graphene are being actively researched for future semiconducting device applications. To this end it is imperative to understand their interactions with technological substrates at the atomistic level. We have developed ultra-clean nanotube deposition and STM spectroscopic methodologies that achieve this level of understanding. Subtle effects are being seen for the first time and are being modeled with first principles theory and simulations.
Research Interests:
  • Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and Spectroscopy
  • STM-Based Nanolithography and Nanofabrication
  • Silicon Based Molecular Electronics
  • Carbon Nanotubes and Carbon Based Nanotechnology merged with Silicon and III-V Semiconductors
  • Growth of 3D silicon nanostructures
  • Deuterium Processing and Hot Electron Degradation in Semiconductor Devices
  • Atomically Precise Dopant Mapping
  • Cross-Sectional STM of Semiconductor Heterostructures
  • Oxide Silicon Interface Mapping
  • Carbon Nanotube Purification
  • Dry Contact Transfer (DCT) Patterning on Nanostructures on Surfaces
  • Chirally Pure Nanotube Growth
  • Integrating Graphene with Silicon and III-V Semiconductors
  • Ultra-Sharp Probe Fabrication
  • Graphene Growth, Characterization and Device Fabrication
  • Carbon Nanotube Purification
  • Carbon Nanotube Transistors - Enhanced Performance
Undergraduate Research Opportunities:
Our group regularly involves undergraduate researchers in nanotechnology projects aimed at gaining an atomic level understanding of important phenomena that govern the development of nanoelectronic devices. Current projects involve the use of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to study carbon nanotubes, graphene and bonded silicon wafers. We are also involved in controlling the growth of carbon nanotubes.
