Dr Gergel-Hackett’s research is focused on the design, fabrication, and physics of novel materials and devices with advantages in scaling and energy for future low-power high-performance electronics. One example of a research project that she is working on is developing and studying the physics behind a solution-processed, physically flexible memristor. Because this novel nanoelectronic device is fabricated using simple room-temperature spin-on techniques and is characterized via basic electrical equipment, it is an excellent technology to be developed and studied by undergraduate students.
