University of Southern California The USC Andrew and Erna Viterbi School of Engineering


We develop electronic and photonic devices through an iterative process of device engineering and materials development. We utilize this multidisciplinary approach to seek answers to questions such as:

  • Can we develop highly efficient energy harvesting systems that are also cost-effective?
  • How do we integrate foreign materials onto silicon wafers to both continue Moore's Law and extend the functionality of silicon?
  • What physical phenomena can we exploit to develop growth techniques that allow structural and chemical control at the atomic scale but enable mass-production of materials?
