Emerging Quantum Nanoelectronic Technology

We seek to set scene for the next 25 years of post-Moore’s law electronics.

This means using new quantum electronic and spintronic materials in new nanoscale devices to outperform the status quo or completely revolutionize the way we think about computing from the device scale up.

Functional Complex Oxide Thin Films

Engineering functional thin film oxide materials for gate-controllable materials properties from effects such as: ferroelasticity, ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism,  multiferroicity, piezoelectricity, and others. Combining these forms of functional materials with new quantum phases from the 2D materials world allow for engineered functional quantum materials.

  • Gate-controllable structural phase transitions
  • Engineered coupled functionality with complex oxides and 2D quantum materials

2D van der Waals Materials


Straintronic quantum spin Hall insulator

Using a new class of van der Waal bonded 2D materials we can develop better, faster and more functional nanoscale electronic devices. New types of quantum phases and unique valley dependent effects occur within these systems: Weyl semimetals, quantum spin Hall insulators, topological superconductors, and others. Combining different types of quantum order with functional complex oxides allows for the discovery of new functional quantum systems for conventional electronic or quantum electronic applications.
