Josh Smith's Purdue Research & Academic Webpage
My name is Josh Smith and I am a PhD Candidate in Purdue University's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, working primarily on Si, Ge, and III-V-based tunneling devices for low-power applications. This site contains information on my past and present research work and publications. In addition to showcasing my own research, this website is meant to serve as a resource for those with current or future interest in nanoelectronics. I will be graduating in December 2011 and will be joining research efforts at IBM T.J. Watson as a Post-Doctoral Researcher, working in the area of carbon-based nanoelectronics.

Exploitation of low-dimensional systems on variety of material platforms for targeted device applications, including low-power and high performance. This includes: 1) characterization of contacts to and material quality of nanomaterial-enabled devices, 2) development and optimization of novel CMOS compatible fabrication methods for devices with enhanced performance, 3) exploration of bandgap engineering, and 4) realization of large-scale integration techniques for nanowires and nanotubes.
