Dr. Friedman directs the interdisciplinary NanoSpinCompute research laboratory at UT Dallas. His research objective is to invent, design, and analyze novel computing paradigms that exploit nanoscale phenomena to achieve greater capabilities than conventional CMOS architectures. He is particularly interested in spintronics and low-dimensional carbon (carbon nanotubes and graphene). The central theme of the NanoSpinCompute research laboratory is to ensure that individual switching elements can be cascaded to enable complex computing systems.
