My research interests include spin-based quantum information processing in semiconductors, spins in semiconductors, device physics, and fabrication of nano-scale electronic devices. My PhD work was on studying spin-dependent transport phenomena in silicon MOSFETs, understanding the conduction electron-donor electron interaction, demonstrating in situ electron polarization detection in these devices and developing few donor doped finFETs towards donor-based quantum computers.

My research focuses on developing a method to measure ultrafast interactions between ferromagnetic nanostructures using the photoemission electron microscope (PEEM) at the Advanced Light Source located on the LBNL campus. Additionally, I am interested in extending the technique to probe dynamics in more complex material systems such as multiferroics.

I study nanoscale magnetic phenomena as part of the Bokor group's nanomagnetic logic research project. My goal is to push the energy efficiency of nanomagnetic information processors all the way to their theoretical limits and still make them fast and reliable enough to compete with conventional alternatives. I use a variety of specialized tools, such as micromagnetic simulations, magneto-optical microscopy, and magnetic force microscopy, to carry out this investigation.

I study electronic contact to small diameter nanotubes and am interested in novel processing techniques and materials to reduce contact resistance. In order to do this I?ve deposit ultra-small nanotubes onto arrays of electrodes that I can then process and isolate to correlate electronic behavior to specific species of nanotubes. This is important because small nanotubes potentially can outperform larger diameter tubes given good contact between the tube and the electrode. By varying process techniques and electrode material we can develop novel processes and know how they will effect electronic performance on single tubes. Ultimately we aim to fabricate ultimately scaled devices to demonstrate the advantages of carbon nanotubes over silicon.

Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) are devices integrating electrical and mechanical functionality on the nanoscale. Nanocantilevers are the most simplified NEMS based devices. We are interested in fabricating nanocantilevers actuated by piezoelectric film or nanomagnets. Potential applications include NEMS switches, logic devices, physical sensing, energy harvesting and so on.
