The Team of Prof. Yuval Yaish
Our research group addresses electrical and mechanical devices comprise of low dimensional materials. Specifically, we studies hybrid nanoscale devices based on 1 and 2 dimensional materials such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs), silicon nanowires, graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDs), and more. The electrical and mechanical coupling between these structures provides fruitful playground for basic and applied research, such as dissipation at the nano-scale, heat transport, non-linear behavior, spin transport, resonance tunneling, moire patterns, non-volatile memory cell, optical chemical and mechanical sensors, and high frequency filters.
Activity in the Consortium
Within the graphene consortium our activity is related to incorporation of multilayer graphene for heat spreaders and hybrid copper/graphene waveguides for high frequency communication embedded within PCBs. We study both the experimental and theoretical modeling of the two topics and address both the thermal distribution and losses within these structures and devices.
