Monica Lilly, Northrup Grumman, gives a talk for the Physics Fall Seminar Series


Contributed by Jill Ackerman

Please join us for a talk with Monica Lilly, Northrop Grumman

Monica Lilly received her undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland College Park where she studied the fabrication and testing of electron doped superconductors.   After graduation she pursued a masters at University of  CA, Riverside with a master project based in the integration of carbon nanotubes as templates for one dimensional superconductors.   For the past five years she has been working at Northrop Grumman as a process engineer, lab manager, and now principle investigator of the carbon nanotube field effect transistor project.

Her talk will focus on using semiconducting carbon nanotubes in radio frequency electronics: what can they be used for and why is the radio frequency industry interested in a one-dimensional semiconductor?  She will also discuss the process of growing carbon nanotubes and turning them into transistors.
