Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
ELECTRONIC DEVICE RELIABILITY; SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE RELIABILITY. A major focus of Expert's research over the past two decades has been on the reliability issues in semiconductor devices; in particular, high-field effects, hot-carrier effects, and ionizing radiation effects. His research in this area has led to over a dozen Ph.D. dissertations and over 100 articles published in professional journals.

SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE CHARACTERIZATION; SEMICONDUCTOR MATERIAL; SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE ANALYSIS. Over the years, Expert has developed and used a number of techniques to measure the electronic properties of semiconductor devices, including current-voltage (I-V), capacitance-voltage (C-V), conductance-voltage (G-V), avalanche hot-carrier injection, and charge pumping techniques. He is knowledgeable of the instrumentation, measurements, data analysis, and device physics aspects of all these techniques.

RADIATION EFFECTS IN MOS DEVICES & CIRCUITS. A major area of his research for nearly two decades, Expert's study of radiation effects in MOS devices and circuits has resulted in the publication of a book in 1989 and over 100 technical articles on this subject.

SEMICONDUCTOR PROCESSING; SEMICONDUCTOR PROCESSING EQUIPMENT. A substantial amount of Expert's research has involved the fabrication of semiconductor devices, especially MOS devices. The processing techniques that are routinely used in his laboratory include wafer cleaning, oxidation, diffusion, photolithography, thin film deposition, etching, annealing, and various plasma-enhanced processes. Expert is familiar with failure analysis, radiation effects, manufacturing equipment, technological limitations, and process induced defects. He has been teaching a course on semiconductor processing for the past ten years.
