Assistant Professor Deji Akinwande Receives NSF CAREER Award
The National Science Foundation recently awarded Deji Akinwande, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, with a CAREER award for his research on “Integrated Si-CMOS and Graphene Heterogeneous Nanoelectronics.” The objective of his research program is to create graphene devices integrated with silicon electronics for advanced systems for the first time. The integration will lead to next generation nanoelectronics that leverage the complexity, scale, cost and technology proliferation of mature silicon systems with the unique functionalities of graphene for future ubiquitous advanced systems. Such systems are transformative and could lead to revolutionary new products similarly to how gigahertz silicon electronics revolutionized mobile communications.
