The Laboratory of Electronics from Nanomaterials is focused on improving the performance and functionality of nanomaterial-enabled electronic devices.  This includes high-performance devices from low-dimensional materials such as 2D films, carbon nanotubes, and nanowires.  Also included is the low-cost realm of printed electronics, which benefits from the incorporation of nanomaterials to enhance electrical transport over large printed features, among other application advantages.  The graphic to the right summarizes the primary drive of our research--to improve performance for all electronic devices, including those with more custom form factors (flexibility, transparency, biocompatibility, etc.).


There are currently opportunities for post-docs and graduate students in the group working in the areas of:

  1. 1) low-dimensional materials for electronics and

  2. 2) nanomaterials for printed electronics

Interested applicants, please contact Professor Franklin with your CV and research interests.
