• A micro bristle bot beside a penny. Azadeh Ansari, DeaGyu Kim and Zhijian Hao are researching a micro bristle bot.


Welcome to our research webpage! Our research is primarily in the area of nano/micro electromechanical systems (N/MEMS) with an emphasis on III-V semiconductors and piezoelectric materials. Areas of research include:

  • Resonant devices for timing, sensing, and RF applications
  • Muscle-inspired actuators for micro-robotic applications
  • Nonlinear and nonreciprocal devices, phononic frequency combs
  • III-V electro-acoustic devices, HEMTs, and circuits

Open Positions

We are always looking for highly-motivated graduate students to join our lab. Please send your CV directly to azadeh.ansari@ece.gatech.edu
