Chemical–mechanical planarization (CMP) is ubiquitous in the processing of semiconductor wafers,
where it is used to achieve flat interfaces between successive layers of circuit structures. As circuit
feature sizes reduce, CMP process innovation is constantly needed to maintain acceptable defect rates
and throughput. Polishing performance depends in complex ways on the materials being removed,...   More >

Our team has invented a new crystalline growth concept, termed “remote epitaxy”, which can copy/paste crystalline information of the wafer remotely through graphene, thus generating single-crystalline films on graphene. The graphene-coated substrates can be infinitely reused. Thus, the remote epitaxy technique can cost-efficiently produce freestanding single-crystalline films.

IBM Call for Code Hackathon - April 26-27 – Cash Prizes!!

Special Event | April 26 | 7-11:50 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, 310 Banatao Auditorium

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

IBM invites you to attend a special Call for Code Hackathon on Friday, April 26 – Saturday, April 27. IBM is challenging university students to develop solutions for disaster response and resilience in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGIU). The timing could not be more critical. In 2018, natural disasters caused an estimated $155 billion in economic loss, impacting...   More >
