Electronics

Nano and 2D

Electronics research is focused on alternative electronic materials beyond silicon, and new electronic properties dominated by the interface physics of 2D materials, dissimilar materials (oxide-semiconductor, metal-semiconductor), and their quantum mechanical properties.

  • One Dimensional (1D) and Two Dimensional (2D) Materials
  • Integrated Quantum Structures

Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS)

Research explores devices for sensing, actuation, precision navigation and timing, low power digital logic, communications, and electronic warfare.

  • Piezoelectric MEMS
  • Micropower Components

Flexible and Conformable Electronics

Offers the opportunity to reduce weight in systems and simplify the integration of electronics ultimately reducing Soldier burden. Focus is on unique sensor capabilities by having sensors, for example, integrated on the body when traditional electronic packaging would be unfeasible.

  • Flexible & Transparent Electronics
  • Nano-engineered Dielectrics

Energy Efficient Electronics

Research seeks to reduce the power consumed by analog front-end and digital back-end electronics for communication, electronic warfare, and imaging systems.

  • Alternative Device Technology
  • RF Electronics
  • Wide Bandgap Materials and Circuits

RF Sensing & Communications Devices

Research explores novel RF devices, circuits and metamaterials to enable future Army operations in contested environments. Research emphasis is placed on RF spectrum adaptability (cognitive RF) and the convergence of RF components to integrate communication, sensing, radar and electronic warfare (protection & attack) applications.
