Driven by the need of energy efficiency and scaling, research in electronic devices in the recent years has focused heavily on new materials and new phenomena, in part to go beyond the capabilities enabled by traditional Si CMOS technology. In this talk, I shall discuss two examples: (i) Two dimensional semiconductors and (ii) Magnetic materials. Both these material systems are currently receiving significant effort from researchers all over the world. In each case, I shall describe our own perspectives as to their potential use for next generation electronics. I shall also discuss specific examples where these materials could lead to applications otherwise difficult to obtain by traditional means.
Sayeef Salahuddin is an assistant professor in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests are in the field of electronic transport in small structures currently focusing on novel electronic and spintronic devices for low power logic and memory applications. He received the Kintarul Haque Gold Medal from BUET in 2003, a MARCO/FCRP Inventor Recognition Award in 2007, a UC Regents Junior Faculty Fellowship in 2009, a Hellman Faculty Fellowship in 2010, the NSF CAREER award in 2011, the IEEE Nanotechnology Early Career Award in 2012, an AFOSR Young Investigator Award in 2013, an ARO Young Investigator Award in 2013 and best paper awards from the IEEE Transactions of VLSI Systems in 2013 and at the VLSI-TSA conference, 2013.
