New materials are being developed and discovered that exhibit unique electronic, photonic, magnetic, and even thermal functionality. Such materials have a widespread of potential applications spanning computation, solid-state lighting, chemical and medical sensors, solar energy, and waste heat recovery. MSE faculty in these areas frequently collaborative with institutes across campus in multiple departments. Current research programs in our department include:

  • High performance thermoelectrics for waste heat conversion
  • Epitaxial heterostructures by Molecular Beam Epitaxy and Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition
  • Ultraviolet nanowire LEDs
  • Superconducting oxide/metal laminates for energy storage and transmission
  • Magnetic and dielectric ceramics for telecommunications
  • Emergent phenomena at interfaces: ferromagnetism, superconductivity, piezoelectricity
  • Magneto-electric materials and spin-based electronics
  • Ultrawide band gap semiconductors for high power and high frequency electronics
  • Spin-Seebeck effect and thermo-magnetic effects in solids
