The Physical Electronics group focuses on theoretical and experimental research projects involving fabrication of electronic materials and new and advanced devices as well as organic and inorganic micro/nanostructures for device applications. A major focus is creating technologies that enable new levels of performance in devices, circuits, systems, sensors and energy conversion/harvesting. The UC Davis Nanofabrication Facility (known as Northern California Nanofabrication Center), with over 13,000 square feet of class-100 cleanroom, is the largest modern teaching and research facility of its kind in the U.S for micro and nano devices, biotechnological fabrication and integration. In addition, there is a Materials Science Central Facility and Advanced Characterization Lab to facilitate the research activities in this field.
