Sodium β-alumina (SBA)-based gate dielectric films have been developed for all solution-processed, transparent and low voltage field-effect transistors (FETs). The dielectric and morphological properties of sol–gel-derived SBA films…
Materials science and engineering is one of the most highly interdisciplinary and dynamic engineering disciplines. Materials scientists and materials engineers seek to understand the fundamental relationships between the structure, properties, processing and performance of materials so that we can synthesize new materials, develop improved processes for making materials and understand the role of materials in the functioning of biological organisms.
The complex dance of dopant atoms in silicon
The diffusion of point defects in silicon at high densities can involve complex coordinated motion of dopants and vacancies. We are developing new algorithms to speed the simulation of these…
Structural and dielectric properties of amorphous Na-Beta-Al2O3
The dielectronic and vibrational properties of SBA will be analyzed using the linear response method based on the density functional perturbation theory.
