All Research Themes at the Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems
The materials and structures research theme encompasses the development of novel materials and their integration with electronics to make smart sensors and systems.
Photonic materials, displays, light sources, and other systems and devices, engineered to provide the manipulation of light from micro- and nano-structured materials.
The integration of novel materials and devices with electronics to sense a range of physical properties such as heat, light, sound, radiation or chemical signatures such as pathogens or gases. This also includes integrating sensors with CMOS to increase their functionality (More than Moore) which involves both design and technology development.
Our vision is to treat platform silicon IC technology as a commodity element of the system with the value added part being the bespoke post-processing and the associated IP.
The design of energy efficient embedded communication centric devices for internet –of-thing as well as emerging smart and wearable mobile devices
