Device architecture and materials innovations have enabled transistor scaling for the last several decades, boosting the performance of electronics, increasing the speed of communication and computational systems, lowering power consumption and reducing costs per operation. Two-dimensional (2D) materials have gained tremendous attention in the last decade, after the discovery of graphene which has exceptional properties like high carrier mobility, ultra-thin van der Waals connected layers (~ 0.3 nm thick), high tensile strength, etc.

Since the beginnings of the semiconductor revolution, device engineering and material development have been deeply interconnected. Innovations in one invariably spurred development in the other. One of the most important current challenges are developing techniques which enable deposition of materials on arbitrary substrates and the design constraints of devices fabricated via these techniques. This thesis focuses on furthering the materials development-device design cycle for three techniques: (i) epitaxial lift-off, (ii) nanowire growth via the vapor-liquid-solid growth mode, and (...

Professor Ali Javey (Advisor)
Ph.D. 2025 (Anticipated)

Noelle received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Caltech in 2020. She is now pursuing her PhD as an NDSEG fellow under the supervision of Prof. Ali Javey. Her research is focused on electrochemical sensing technologies for athletic and healthcare applications, in particular developing and using sweat sensors to understand how non-invasive parameters can reflect deeper physiology. On the side, she rides bikes with Cal Cycling.
