Abstract:

This program achieved fundamental understanding of radiation damage mechanisms in 3 important emerging electronic materials complex oxides, graphene, and diamond. Our work used advanced materials probes to understand the basic mechanisms of radiation interaction with these three electronic and photonic materials. This work included examination of device- ready e.g. FETS, optical modulators, spintronics and thin-film forms. Radiation sources at Brookhaven National Lab., Univ. of Albany, and Pacific Northwest Labs were utilized. The program educated 4 graduate students and yielded many papers and invited talks. Radiation is shown to cause degradation due to displacement and total dose damage.
