Welcome to the Nano-Electronics and Advanced Materials (NEAM) Research Lab.  Our research focuses on the nanoscale energy transport and its applications in advanced materials and nano-electronic devices, as a combination of theoretical and experimental studies.

We welcome undergraduates, especially minority students, to work part time in our lab under the guidance from graduate students. Reasonable compensation for your efforts will be offered.  A summer intern will be considered for qualified students. However, international students are not considered due to the visa and other issues.

Research Assistantship is available and highly motivated students are encouraged to apply. The focus will be on nanofabrication and phonon/electron simulations of next-generation electronic devices. However, we do not take students who is enrolled in other departments within UA. You expect to be enrolled in AME to get supported. We weclome students with backgrounds in microelectronics, materials science, and heat transfer. Please send your transcript and Resume to Dr. Qing Hao. Potential candidates will be contacted. For those in AME, you may meet with Dr. Hao and discuss the possibilities.
