Professor Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma's research interest spans semiconductor devices, related materials, processing, physics and integration, with applications in electronics, optoelectronics, photonics, bioelectronics, biomimetics and energy conversion.  His current research program focuses on semiconductor nanomembrane-based heterojunction materials and devices, fast flexible electronics and flexible optoelectronics, biodegradable electronics, photonics and imaging, bioelectronics, DNA sequencing, energy, and power electronics.  Semiconductor plays a very important role in the technology advances of the past several decades with applications having penetrated into every corner of society.  As new applications continue to emerge, new semiconductor materials and related processing technologies are needed to address them.  Professor Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma's research group exploits novel semiconductor materials and processing for their device research by collaborating with internationally recognized materials scientists, physicists, and state-of-the-art semiconductor foundries.  He is particularly interested in and is extensively exploring the use of single crystal semiconductor nanomembranes in the related research.  The unique transfer printing and mechanical properties of semiconductor nanomembranes create an entirely new material platform for device exploration with tremendous space for exploration, which conventional fabrication methods are unable to offer.
