Research Description: 

Mark Rodwell’s research focuses on extending the operation of electronics to the highest feasible frequencies. His research interests includes energy efficient semiconductor devices (diodes, transistors, photodiodes), semiconductor fabrication process, circuit design, interconnects, instruments, and communications systems. Particular interests include THz InP (indium phosphide) bipolar transistors, nm III-V MOSFETs (metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors) for both VLSI (very large scale integration) and THz (terahertz) applications, and IC (integrated circuit) design above 50 GHz (gigahertz) in both III-V and Silicon VLSI technologies.


PhD: Electrical Engineering, Stanford University (1988)


Mark Rodwell holds the Doluca Family Endowed Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC Santa Barbara where he also directs the UCSB Nanofabrication laboratory and its participation in the NSF National Nanofabrication Infrastructure Network (NNIN).
