Research Project Title:

Night-Vision Imaging System Using 2D and Ferroelectric Materials

abstract:The semiconductor world is on the lookout for small materials that can produce big results. One such material is MoS2, which is 2-dimensional and, when coupled with a ferroelectric gate, creates a device that is very sensitive to changes in temperature. This project focuses on using this 2-dimensional material MoS2 to make devices that can be used for infrared detection and imaging. The first step is to fabricate a single pixel that can capture an image using rasterization and use a microcontroller to display the image on a screen in real time. If successful, an array of devices with several pixels will be made, integrated with infrared lenses, to capture the image.
About:

I'm participating in SuperUROP to gain more experience in semiconductor device research and to take on a research project of my own. I took a nanoelectronics class — 6.012 Nanoelectronics and Computing Systems — last Fall and really enjoyed it and continued my learning with a UROP in the field through the rest of the year. I hope this experience will help me decide what I would like to do after college.
