Materials Research

The Materials Research team is one of three groups involved in Threadwork with research emphasized on neuromorphic materials and THz interconnection.

The materials research entails two areas. First Threadwork will explore how the unique properties of two-dimensional semiconductor materials enable opportunities for novel gate-tunable, multiport neuromorphic devices, i.e., memtransistors. Second, Threadwork will investigate THz plasmonics for optical-electrical interconversions with optical interconnects. We will also explore the opportunity for co-development between the two materials research efforts.
