Departments

NISE Department
A common theme underlying the projects in Parkin’s department is the creation of atomically engineered materials with novel properties. These “unnatural” materials are created by the deposition of atomically thick thin films using techniques ranging from molecular beam epitaxy, pulsed laser deposition, magnetron and ion beam sputtering to atomic layer deposition. Cognitive and spintronic materials are explored as well as research into hybrid and exotic materials ... more
Theory Department
The focus of our research is on the following topics: Ab-initio theory of superconductivity, Optical properties of solids, Analysis and control of electron dynamics, Quantum transport, Correlated electron-nuclear motion, Development of functional theories for static and time-dependent quantum systems, Ab-initio theory of strongly-correlated systems, Oxidic surfaces and interfaces, Magnetic nanostructures and Magnons in complex materials ...

NINT Department

Moore’s Law is ending, opening up exciting possibilities for computers with new architectures and form factors.  The research in the Poon Department will be centered on 3D multi-technology microsystems.  A major theme of our research will be devices and systems that bring nanotechnology into brains, so that we may “bring brains into nanotechnology.” Our goal is to advance computing and neuro-science/medicine...
