＜Field of Specialization＞
Dr. Banerjee, professor of electrical and computer engineering at UC Santa Barbara, is one of the world’s leading innovators in the field of nanoelectronics. His current research focuses on the physics, technology, and applications of two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as graphene, and their heterostructures for designing next-generation energy-efficient electronics, photonics, and bioelectronics. His radical innovations with 2D materials are foundational for a new generation of ultra-energy-efficient electronics needed to support the Internet of Things.
<Brief introduction of collaborative research and aims at WRHI>
I will focus on the design and synthesis of 2D layered materials for a wide range of applications including sub-5 nm LSI and sensors.
