Tomás Palacios Group




 We focus on combining extreme electronic materials such as Graphene and Gallium Nitride (GaN), with nanotechnology, making new devices using system-level concepts to start the next revolution in semiconductor devices, with a goal of creating the next generation of power electronics and their system-level applications.

Our Vision & Mission

Welcome to my group’s page! My group in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) focuses on advanced electronic devices based on new semiconductors, especially nitrides and graphene. Our work combines new semiconductor physics and novel materials to demonstrate semiconductor devices and systems with unprecedented performance. We are working on many exciting applications, including:

  • High-frequency electronics (>300 GHz)

  • High voltage electronics (600 V – 10 kV) for power conversion

  • Digital electronics in a post-Si scenario

  • High-temperature electronics

  • Ubiquitous and large-area electronics

  • New concepts for biosensors and energy harvesting devices

  • Visit the Projects page to learn more about our work. Feel free to contact me if you have any question or if you would like more information about my group! Click here to read about my Research Advising Philosophy.
