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 1) Lattice mismatched semiconductor heterostructures and related materials, physics and device applications; 2) Microwave flexible electronics and flexible optoelectronics; 3) Bioelectronics, including neuron engineering, novel electrogram electrodes and scaffold fabrication. Semiconductors play a very important role in the technological 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 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.
