Welcome to Device Research Laboratory at UCLA’s Electrical Engineering Department
Under the directorship of Prof. Kang L. Wang, Raytheon Chair Professor of Physical Science and Electronics, DRL’s Mission is to investigate new ideas and to develop innovative methods that will continue to push the frontier and shape the future of nanoelectronics and information processing platforms. Our group pursues frontier research in the fields of nanoelectronics and nanoarchitectures, spintronics and nanomagnetics; nanoscale science, devices and quantum systems; nonvolatile electronics and low dissipation devices; molecular beam epitaxy; optoelectronics and solar cells.
- Dr. Koichi Murata has joined the DRL group as a visiting scholar. He joins us from the University of Tsukuba, Japan.
- DRL welcomes visiting scholars Ma Zhu, Justin Xu, Dr. Toshi Kawaharamura, and Dr. Hong-Suk Kim:
Ma Zhu is a PhD student from the State Key Laboratory of Electronic Thin Film& Integrated Devices at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC).
Justin Xu joins us from The University of Queensland, Australia. His area of research relates to the use extensive electron microscopy to study the growth of III-V epitaxial semiconductor nanowires in metal-organic chemical vapor deposition systems.
Dr. Toshi Kawaharamura is a lecturer from the Institute for Nanotechnology at the Kochi University of Technology, Japan.
Dr. Hong-Suk Kim joins us from Samsung Electronics, Korea.
