Two articles, co-authored by Professor Bird, have appeared in this highly recognized journal in the field of electronics.
The articles, "Fast Energy Relaxation of Hot Carriers Near the Dirac Point of Graphene" (2.2 MB) and "Large Magnetoresistance of Nickel-Silicide Nanowires: Non-Equilibrium Heating of Magnetically-Coupled Dangling Bonds." were published in December 2013.
Professor Bird and his doctoral students at UB form the key members of NoMaD - the Nanoelectronic Materials and Devices Research Group - which focuses on research in various areas of nanoelectronics:
Professor Bird is a member of the UB Department of Electrical Engineering’s Solid State Electronics Research Group, which conducts research in nanoelectronics, nanomaterials and characterization, terahertz technology, microelectronic and optoelectronic devices and materials, carbon nanotubes, plasma dynamics, transport and device physics in semiconductor heterostructures, magnetism, very-large-scale integration (VLSI) and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) circuits, and systems-on-a-chip.
Other members of the group include Liesl Folks, dean of the UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; professors Ping-Chin Cheng, Vladimir Mitin, David Shaw, Chu Ryang Wie; associate professor Kwang Oh; and assistant professors Erik Einarsson and Uttam Singisetti.
