Our research interest is in the field of advanced electronic devices based on compound semiconductors and nanotechnology. By “advanced”, we understand the use of radically new concepts and a multi∗disciplinary approach to both improve already existing devices and to fabricate completely new semiconductor-based micro- and nano-systems. These devices will help the introduction of Electrical Engineering in numerous new fields, including its next frontier, its interaction with biological systems. In the links below, here are the recent projects under Prof. Palacios laboratory.
You can find below our group’s contributions to the 2020 Microsystems Conference at MIT (MARC). They will give you a good idea about the research topics we are currently pursuing.
