Materials for Information Technology

Electronic materials and devices have fundamental altered society over the last half-century, ushering in an era of globally-connected computers and smart phones. However, physical limitations on the current technologies have led to a search for new electronic materials to continue the decades-long increase in computing power, device portability and functionality.

At Drexel, students and faculty are working at the forefront of electronic materials research including areas such as multifunctional complex oxide thin films and superlattices, semiconductor nanowires and quantum dots, and novel two-dimensional carbides.
