Our lab has a Physics-to-Systems focus that aims to exploit unique features of novel materials and phenomena to design and experimentally prototype efficient electronic circuits and architectures. Our philosophy is that such an interdisciplinary approach that connects materials, devices and circuits to architectures and algorithms is essential in the new era of electronics that will be driven by heterogeneous systems in domain-specific contexts. This is in stark contrast to the Moore’s Law-driven era that has been about optimizing and improving a single device, the field-effect transistor, to deliver more powerful computing systems. The new era of electronics calls for a new kind of engineer who needs to be deep in one field but also broad enough to be able to make connections to related disciplines.

 Join OPUS Lab!

We are recruiting!

 Research Areas

We extend algorithms and architectures that match features of emerging hardware to cater to the needs of computation.
Designing efficient circuits with new functionalities often involves mapping materials directly to applications.
We seek to translate emerging materials and phenomena into physics-based circuit models to design benchmark circuits.
