The development of epitaxial oxide structures with unprecedented high electron densities has the potential to create a new class of extreme power-density electronics for communications and energy applications. The objective of the multidisciplinary program “EXtreme Electron concentration oxide DEvices (EXEDE)” is to enable new electronic and plasmonic devices through the control of extreme-density, two-dimensional electron gases at polar oxide interfaces, engineering the band separation at oxide interfaces and innovative approaches to increase electron mobility and carrier velocities. The device research program is underpinned by research aimed at advancing oxide materials physics to address challenges such as intrinsically low carrier mobilities.

This multidisciplinary research inititative is funded through the Office of Naval Research through grant number (N00014-12-1-0976).
