Nanoscale Devices for Ultralow Power Computing


Digital computing technology continues to have a profound impact on human lives in areas such as energy, public health, security, business, and artificial intelligence. The landscape of computing will experience transformative changes in the next decade and HMNTL faculty have the expertise to be at the forefront of the next phase in the digital computing revolution.

Addressing the challenges of ultralow power computing will require a cohesive approach that integrates theory, materials synthesis, and atomically precise fabrication and characterization.

HMNTL faculty include experts in 1D nanowire synthesis and devices, 2D chalcogenide-based heterostructures and devices, atomically precise fabrication of graphene nanoribbons and devices, and nanoscale device simulations. HMNTL faculty have conducted highly visible and award-winning work in nanoscale devices and nanotechnology and are well-funded from individual to MURI-level programs. 

Nanoscale devices will be used to create power-efficient computing machines
