Sustainable electronic technologies

Wireless technology

Our group explores how to improve renewable energy sources and create more efficient electronic device technology to benefit the environment.

About

We research new methods of electricity generation, and more efficient electronics and communications, while addressing all aspects of sustainability.

Electronic devices, such as computers, mobile phones and data centres, account for a significant amount of the world's energy consumption.

We need electricity from renewable resources in order to allow advanced electronic devices to have a continued positive impact on society. We also need high-speed, low-power and efficient computing and communication.

Our research interests cover 3 main areas:

  • solar cells and energy harvesting, including photovoltaic devices, photovoltaic systems, thermoelectric generators and radiative cooling
  • mobile and automotive electronics, including lidar and beam steering light-emitting diodes, structural colour and photo-detectors
  • devices for artificial intelligence, including neuromorphic computing, heterogeneous integration, 2D material-based transistors and flexible electronics

Doctor Firman Simanjuntak SMIEE MInstP

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellow

Research interests

  • Dr Firman is exploiting the emerging memristive system for ultra-high dense data storage, AI-hardware accelerator, and sensor applications, where these multifunctional capabilities can exist in single architectonic enabling reconfigurable and adaptive electronic system. He is also interested in integrating our memristive devices with different electronics (RF, LED, waveguide, etc.) to open a new way of controlling the electrical/material properties of the integrated devices.
