Biography

Professor
Materials Science and Engineering
Department of Electrical Engineering
Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering

Sandwip Dey received his Ph.D. in ceramic engineering from Alfred University in 1984. He joined the ASU faculty in 1987 and is currently a professor in the Materials Science and Engineering program of the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy, and is affiliated with the Center for Interventional Biomaterials and the Department of Electrical Engineering.

Expertise

Processing science of nanoparticles, nanowires, and epitaxial/polycrystalline films of metals and ceramics by VLS, co-precipitation, sol-gel, MOCVD, and ALCVD and their integration into devices for electronics, energy, or theranostic platforms for neoplastic diseases. Guided by computations, point defect chemistry, statistical design of experiments, and advanced characterization techniques, the central theme is on the understanding and control of the inter-relationships between processing-nanostructure-property-reliability.

Education

1984, Ph.D. Ceramic Engineering, New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University

 

Research Interests

General Subject Areas: Synergistic, interdisciplinary research on the processing science of nanoparticles, nanowires, and epitaxial/polycrystalline films (2.5-500 nm) of Ceramics and Metals by VLS, co-precipitation, sol-gel, microwave, MOCVD, and ALCVD and their integration into devices for electronics, energy, or theranostic platforms for neoplastic diseases.

General Approach: G uided by phase stability and ab initio calculations, point defect chemistry, HRTEM/FESEM, analytical TEM, spectroscopy, statistical design of experiments, and electrical/optical/dielectric/ in vitro characterization to understand  and control the inter-relationships between Processing-Nanostructure-Property-Reliability.

Practically-relevant Current Topics: Solid-state electronics for computers and communications, photodetectors and sensors, energy conversion devices, and flexible platforms; Inorganic nanobio-platforms  for targeted anticancer drug delivery with built-in molecular imaging agents.  

Practically-relevant Prior Topics: Chemical precursors and nanostructure evolution, Modeling of electronic/dielectric responses, interface physics, and degradation in ultra-thin films for CMOS, DRAMs, capacitors, and non-volatile memories; Inorganic nanovectors.
