Abstract

The discovery of the first truly two-dimensional material, graphene, has potential impact on many fronts of applications ranging from electronics, optoelectronics, nanomechanics, solar cells etc. Recent demonstration of the first graphene integrated circuit at IBM represents a significant step in its transition from basic science to real world application. Through theory and modeling, I will discuss the electronic properties of graphene subjected to typical engineering situations, mostly corroborated with experiments. We shall see that in many instances graphene behaves very differently from silicon, presenting both engineering challenges and exciting opportunities. The impact of these new understanding on graphene nanoelectronics will be discussed.

Biography:

Tony Low received his PhD from the school of Electrical and Computer Engineering at National University of Singapore in 2008. In 2007, he was a visiting scientist at Network for Computational Nanoelectronics of Purdue University where he became a post-doctoral research associate in 2008. In 2011, he joined the carbon nanoelectronics group at IBM TJ Watson research center and as the liason to several research centers under the NSF Nanoelectronics Research Initiative program for post-CMOS technologies. His research interests are in the theory and simulations of novel materials, transport physics and devices. He has contributed extensively to the exploration of graphene devices and understanding of its related transport phenomena, and had also worked on conventional semiconductor field effect devices and its spin variants. Tony is the recipient of the Singapore Millennium Fellowships 2006 and the IEEE Electron Device Society Fellowship 2005.
