About us

Welcome to the Advanced Materials and Microsystems Laboratory. We are a group of scientists working at the cutting edge on magnetic, multiferroic, ferroelectric, thermoelectric, and other advanced materials and microsystems. Our research interests include novel integrated magnetic, ferroelectric and multiferroic materials and microsystems for sensing, memory, power, RF and microwave electronics. Specifically, we work on materials and microsystems for biomagnetic sensing, micromagnetic neural stimulation, room-temperature electro-magneto-encephalography, different tunable RF/microwave components, including multiferroic antennas, tunable inductors, filters, phase shifters, isolators, circulators, etc., integrated thermoelectric materials and devices, materials and devices for vibration energy harvesting applications, etc.
