The primary mission of the Center of Electronic Materials Research is to develop and disseminate the original technologies of designing, processing, and characterizing thin films and devices for the use as the core electronic materials and components in future information/energy technology. On the material level, our major interest is to enhance the materials properties, and to create new functionality by way of controlling the atomic structures and defects of subnano to nano scale. Also to design materials and understand their physical phenomena by using computational science in the range of electronic materials spanning capacitive, resistive/conductive, and photonics-convergent materials. In terms of device applications, our major research topics consist of 1)Energy harvesting for ubiquitous sensor networks and embedded thin film capacitor regarding applications of capacitive materials, 2)Next-generation nonvolatile memory and switching devices regarding resistive materials, 3)Oxide thin film transistor, transparent conducting oxides, and chalcogen thermoelectric devices regarding conductive materials, and 4)Plasmonic-based optical materials and devices regarding applications of photonics-convergent materials.
