Prof. Rickett’s research focuses on the investigation of the fundamental performance limitations of microelectronic circuits. His research crosses the fields of device physics, material science, physics and circuit design, investigating the ultimate capabilities of microelectronic devices and how these are harnessed by differing circuit topologies to produce the highest performing systems. His research covers a wide range of areas, including Si and Polymer nanowire FETs, RF graphene circuits, Spinwave devices as well as nonlinear circuits, high-speed ADCs, neural networks and energy conversion.
