Biography

I was born in Moscow, USSR in 1959, got my University Diploma in Physics from Lomonosov Moscow State University in 1983, got my Ph.D. in Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics from Institute of Radio Engineering and Electronics (USSR Academy of Sciences) in 1990. The title of my thesis was "Mesoscopic effects in hopping conductance of GaAs field-effect transistor" (Ph.D. advisor Dr. Alex Savchenko ) I spent a year in England working in Alex Savchenko group at the University of Exeter. Since 1994, I live and work in the USA. Currently, I am Research Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame.

Summary of Activities/Interests

Research Interests: My topics of research are experimental studies of nanostructures and nanodevices with main focus on experimental single electronics and nanomagnetics. This include single-electron devices used for sensors, memories and logic, quantum-dot cellular automata (electronic and magnetic), domain-wall motion in magnetic nanowires. Most recently several important experimental results were obtained. High frequency single-electron latch was demonstrated with 1 microsecond clock pulses. Single electron transistors fabricated on wide bandgap insulating substrates were tested. A lot of interesting developments are in the field of nano magnetic logic.

Rachel Bonek: Driven by Dual-DegrEE

May 11, 2019

NDEE senior Rachel Bonek represents an exclusive sector of NDEE majors, those earning a dual-degree. Rachel received her bachelor's degree in physics and applied mathematics from neighboring Saint Mary’s College. She then went on to study one more year here at the University of Notre Dame and this May, will also receive a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from NDEE.
