Computational Nanoelectronics and Emerging Devices Group

CNEG’s research is focused on the theoretical and computational investigation of device science and engineering based on nanoelectronics, spintronics, and advanced materials, with an emphasis on low-power consumption applications and nonvolatile electronic system. The research topics are engaged in a dynamic and multidisciplinary research program requiring (1) fundamental understanding of materials to discover original and unique properties and their affects on carrier, spin and heat transport, and (2) a creative engineering approach to innovate and realize novel devices. The studied devices widely include the electronic, thermoelectric, optoelectronic, electron-optics, magnetic, and spintronic devices. Many of our theoretical predictions have been confirmed by experimental measurements.
