Description

Abstract: Two-dimensional (2D) materials have applications in low-power electronics and energy-conversion systems. These are also rich domains for both fundamental discoveries as well as technological advances. This talk will present recent highlights from our research on graphene, BN, and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). We have studied graphene from basic transport measurements and simulations, to the recent wafer-scale demonstration of analog dot product nanofunctions for neural networks. We are also growing and evaluating the electrical, thermal, and thermoelectric properties of TMDs including MoS2, MoSe2, HfSe2, and WTe2. Recent results include low-resistance contacts, 10-nm scale transistors, and high-field transport studies including velocity saturation.

About the Speaker: A/Prof. Pop received his PhD in EE from Stanford (2005) and three degrees from MIT (MEng and BS in EE, BS in Physics). His honors include the 2010 PECASE from the White House, and Young Investigator Awards from the ONR, NSF CAREER, AFOSR, and DARPA. His research interests are at the intersection of electronics, nanomaterials, and energy. He was previously on the faculty of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (2007-13) and also worked at Intel (2005-07). He is currently an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering (EE) and Materials Science & Engineering (by courtesy) at Stanford University.
