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. His team addresses the spectrum management challenge by developing integrated nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) realizing intelligent RF spectral processors. In this talk, he will present recent material-, device- and system-level innovations that enable CMOS-monolithic integration of configurable cm- and mm-wave NEMS filters for software-defined radios. He will also introduce exciting opportunities at the intersection of semiconductor electronics, emerging ferroelectrics, and nonlinear nano-electro-mechanics to enable autonomous RF spectral processors for zero-power and no-latency adaptive communication.
Roozbeh Tabrizian is an Assistant Professor and the Alan Hastings Faculty Fellow at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Florida. He received his B.S. (2007) degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, and the Ph.D. (2013) degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He was a Post-Doctoral Scholar (2014-2015) at the University of Michigan. His research interests include RF micro- and nanoelectro-mechanical systems (RF N/MEMS), nonlinear, nonreciprocal, and hybrid nano-systems for sensing and information processing, and emerging ferroelectric materials and devices. Tabrizian has received a DARPA Young Faculty Award (2019) and an NSF CAREER Award (2018). His research has resulted in more than 60 journal and refereed conference papers. He holds 16 patents and patent applications. Tabrizian and his students are recipients of multiple outstanding paper awards at toptier conferences such as IEEE MEMS and Transducers.
