The Center for E3S welcomes Felix Fischer, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, UC Berkeley, as a faculty member in the Nanoelectronics research theme. The Fischer group’s research topic is Quantum Tunneling Devices in Synthetic Graphene Nanoribbons.
Professor Eli Yablonovitch, E3S Center Director and Leader of the Nanoelectronics research theme, shared: “E3S has placed attention squarely on novel materials systems capable of producing the most perfect molecular scale device structures as material perfection will be a pre- requisite for progress towards a milli-volt nanoelectronic devices. The Center’s researchers at MIT and Berkeley have learned from a combination of experimental and analytical studies that that the current level of material defects explains, in part, why the reported experimental results to date have failed to yield devices with the steepness, On/Off ratio and conductance promised by theory. Professor Fischer’s research on Quantum Tunneling Devices in Graphene Nanoribbons promises to move our Center’s research towards high-yielding, atomically perfect device structures.”
Professor Fischer will give a webinar on his research to Center members on April 29.
