- Electronically stimulated atomic processes (semiconductors to photosynthesis) and their relationship to device reliability and bond-selective chemistry
- Processing, perfection, and performance of hetreoepitaxial material systems (phase stability, coherence, growth morphology, perfection) and applications to high speed devices, optoelectronic integrated circuits, and oxide superconductors
- Optical and magneto-optic phenomena in solids applied to photonic switching
- The electrical properties of novel metal and metal-semiconductor systems with contact and interconnect application
- Integrated processing of materials including atomistic modeling, monitoring, and control for continuous flow processing of photovoltaic devices and integrated circuits.
The group's research activities address the fundamental science of imperfection in solids and the processing of electronic materials. The programs include an emphasis on both materials science and applications. Some examples are:
