Microelectronics Research Laboratory (MRL) is a group of related laboratories supporting all aspects of microelectronics, including fundamental microelectronic device modeling and processing, integrated circuit design and fabrication. MRL links the efforts of the following associated laboratories: (1) Advanced Development Laboratory (Class 100 clean room), (2) Device Characterization and Analysis Laboratory, and (3) Advanced Materials Laboratory for undergraduate and graduate students. The Microelectronics Research Laboratories have supported National Science Foundation and NASA funded research projects. Several well-established companies have spun out of MRL-supported activities, including Ramtron and Symetrix.
Areas of research in the MRL include: a) Non-volatile memory based on Complex Oxides. b) Non Volatile memory based on nano- crystals. c) Bio detectors. d ) Tunable devices for RF circuit applications (tunable filters, oscillators and matching networks). e) Piezoelectric energy conversion.
