Oxide electronic materials for next-generation electronics

1. Content & Characteristic

O This research aims for development of new oxide electronic materials for next-generation devices with ultrafast speed, high-density, and multifunctionality to overcome the technological limits of the conventional silicon-based electronics. It consists of three parts:

- Integration of the two dimensional electron gas (2DEG) at ABO3-type complex oxide interfaces into novel nanoelectronic devices through atomic-layer-controlled thin film deposition, synthesis of new materials with higher mobility, and controlling 2DEG conductivity by an external field.

- Application toward sensors for detecting molecules, light, magnetic field, and pressure.

- Design of new materials by computational simulations.



2. Scientific and Technological Value

O This research is important in terms of developing novel electronic devices which can overcome the limitations of the conventional Si-based electronics utilizing multifunctional properties of ABO3-type complex oxides.

3. Social and Economic Effect

O Development of methodology to design new materials by computational simulation.

O Development of infrastructure of the oxide-related industries.

O World leading group in the field of future-nanoelectronic devices.

O Long-term and stable market share of Korea in the global market of electronic devices.
