Professor Balandin receives $51,380 grant from UC MICRO
Professor Balandin received $51,380 industry-sponsored grant from the UC MICRO Program for the project on micro-Raman mapping of strain distribution in semiconductor hetero- and nanostructures. Most of the advanced electronic devices are presently made of heterostructures consisting of materials with different crystal lattice constants. The latter leads to the build up of the tensile or compressive strain in the device structure, which affects its electronic properties. The accurate knowledge of the strain distribution in the heterostructures allows one to predict performance and optimize the design of electronic devices. The no-overhead MICRO grant will allow Professor Balandin’s group to carry out experimental research, which is of great interest to the microelectronic industry in California and nationwide.
