ECE Devices and Circuits Research

We excel in the design of THz devices and circuits, microelectromechanical components, super-conducting materials, and beyond-CMOS electronics.


Our research advances understanding of non-Boolean computing, biomolecular sensing, long-range sensing (radio telescopes), wireless communications, and large-scale data storage.
