Tomás Palacios' Group @ MIT

Advanced Semiconductor Materials and Devices


Welcome, as Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT), my group focuses on advanced electronic devices based on new semiconductors, especially nitrides and graphene. These semiconductors are, probably, the most complete semiconductor family ever, and we are currently using them in 4 different applications:

  • High frequency electronics (>300 GHz)
  • High voltage electronics (600 V – 10 kV) for power conversion
  • Digital electronics in a post-Si scenario
  • New concepts for biosensors and energy harvesting devices

Please visit the Research section of this website if you want more information on any of these topics. And, feel free to contact me if you have any question or you would like more information about my group!!
