Cornell Ultra high-speed Nonlinear Integrated Circuit lab does research on the next generations of ultra-high performance analog circuits and systems.
THE RESEARCH AREA
Our research interests include the application of the mathematical theory of wave propagation to high performance analog circuit design with a special interest in:
- Novel integrated circuits for mm-wave and terahertz signal generation and processing
- Finding the fundamental limits of analog circuits and systems
- Extremely low noise circuits and systems using noise squeezing
- Low phase noise, wide tuning range voltage controlled oscillators
- High speed, low power ADC design
- Scattering theory for electrical media: Optotronics
- Ultra fast computation using 2-dimensional integrated structures
As part of this effort, we have been able to blend multiple disciplines within the fields of electrical engineering, applied physics and mathematics into a coherent research theme resulting in multiple novel circuits for various applications.
We design and implement circuits and systems in standard silicon CMOS and BiCMOS technologies as well as GaN substrate; however, the techniques and concepts could be implemented in other technologies or even in other engineering fields (e.g. optics and applied mathematics).
