Intelligent Nano-Electro-Mechanics for Adaptive RF Communication

The emerging connected world of the IoT era relies on massive wireless communication among billions of users, leading to inevitable interference and congestion of our limited spectrum resources. My team addresses the spectrum and interference management challenge by developing intelligent nano-electro-mechanical systems that enable adaptive RF spectral processing. In this talk, I will share innovative techniques for monolithic integration of configurable filters over cm- and mm-wave frequencies to realize chip-scale software-defined radios for the first time. I will also introduce exciting opportunities at the intersection of semiconductor electronics, emerging ferroelectrics, and nano-mechanics to enable instinctual RF interference management with zero power consumption.
