Maâs research group revolves around the scientific and technological issues related to semiconductor devices, especially those involving MIS (Metal-Insulator-Semiconductor) systems. It overlaps a number of areas in materials synthesis and device physics. Most of Professor Maâs graduate students and research staff collaborate with a number of universities and major semiconductor companies in the United States and abroad.
Prof. Ma’s current research projects (short description of all projects):
- Advanced Gate Dielectrics
- Flash Memory Devices
- MIS Devices Based on InGaAs, SiC, GaN, and SiGe
- Inelastic Electron Tunneling Spectroscopy (IETS) of Ultra-Thin Dielectrics
- Ferroelectric Thin Films for Memory Technology
- Unipolar CMOS Technology
