Our Research Interests

Our research efforts cover a wide spectrum of high frequency electronics from novel electronic materials and high-speed devices to complex circuits and sub-systems.  UCSB has a very strong program in compound semiconductor materials and devices, and most of our research efforts make use of extensive infrastructure and collaborations in this area.  In general, our work is aimed at developing enabling materials and device technologies and new circuit architectures  for making high frequency circuits faster, more efficient, with higher power  and increased functionality, as compared with existing state-of-the-art.

Contact Information

If you are completing an undergraduate degree, have an interest in high frequency electronics, and are considering a graduate degree program in this area, please contact me as listed below.   New research assistantships for PhD students are available each year, covering tuition and fees as well as a monthly stipend for living expenses.   In addition, our department also offers several teaching assistantships to qualified students with a strong proficiency in spoken English and a desire to teach.  Interested students should complete the on-line  Graduate Application Form.   Once this information is obtained, UCSB will forward a formal Graduate Application Package.

Visit our lab anytime, but please arrange your visit in advance; you may also wish to consult the on-line Campus Visitors Center to attend a Campus tour or sit in on a lecture.  While you are here, check out what the rest of Santa Barbara has to offer!
