Spyridon Pavlidis

Assistant Professor



Spyridon's research interests lie at the intersection of electronic materials, devices, packaging and circuits. In recent years, his primary focus has been on the development of high-performance wide bandgap semiconductors for high power, high frequency and sensing applications. This has included the 3-D integration of heterogeneous systems, high-power GaN packaging and power amplifier design, as well as metal oxide (e.g., ZnO, InGaZnO) thin film transistors (TFTs) for biochemical sensor applications. Further interests lie in the development of nanoscale (e.g., 2D) materials for biosensing and flexible electronics, 3D printing and aerosol jet printing for packaging at micro and mm-wave frequencies.
