This report consists of three parts an Ohio State Electrical Computer Engineering Physics component, an Ohio State Electrosciences component, and a Wright State component. This research effort addresses the need for high performance radio frequency RF components, specifically varactors and miniaturized, high gain, high bandwidth antennas. This program encompasses materials design, growth, processing, and physical characterization to develop varactor and antenna components with low dielectric loss. This program of research represents the second stage of the MultiFunctional oxide Materials, their Applications MFMA and devices initiative, which seeks to leverage Ohio strengths in oxide materials, magnetics and telecommunications into state-of-the-art electromagnetic technology that can revolutionize products in communications, sensors, and radar. Functional epitaxial oxide devices based on MFMA technology can enhance telecommunication both wired and wireless, and optical, present-day computers, and provide technologies for nonvolatile data storage, sensors for defense and commercial application. This Ohio effort coordinates with complementary growth, characterization and device fabrication activities of Prof. Hadis Morkoc at Virginia Commonwealth University.
