Cockrell Family Regents Chair #4
Electrical and Computer Engineering
University of Texas at Austin
Seminar: Beyond-CMOS Low Power Electronics and Spintronics
Abstract: Banerjee will discuss his group’s work in unconventional logic and memory devices for potential low-power replacement for CMOS. There are exciting opportunities for electronics in “flatland” based on 2D materials such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides and topological insulators. He will discuss his work involving 2D-2D tunneling leading to transistors with negative differential resistance, and explore spintronics in these systems for novel logic and non-volatile memory.
About the speaker: Sanjay Banerjee is the Cockrell Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director, of the Microelectronics Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin. He works on CMOS and novel logic and memory devices, and has over 1000 publications and 35 U.S. patents. He has received the SIA/SRC University Researcher Award, IEEE Grove Award and ECS Callinan Award, and is a Fellow of IEEE, APS and AAAS.
Host: Avik Ghosh, professor of electrical and computer engineering and professor of physics
