This department works to figure out the behavior of electrons in matter and how it allows us to create brain-machine interfaces with faster computers and higher throughput. We delve into advanced materials with excellent electrical properties. Our research deals with a wide range of electrical materials with unique characteristics ranging from semiconductor nanomaterials and dielectric thin films to conducting polymer and micro-electrode arrays. Maintaining the performance of electronic devices when approaching very small dimensions is the key to the high-speed computing devices. Electrode materials with small footprints are basic components of nanoelectronics for examination and modulation of electrical signals in the body. Current research includes bulk crystal growth, organic semiconductors, thin film and nanostructures growth, flexible electronics and bioelectronic interfaces.
