Magnetic Nanocomposites for On-chip RF Inductors

On-chip inductors are key passive elements to radio frequency (RF) integrated circuits (ICs). This project explores 1) high permeability magnetic core for on-chip RF inductors to shrink their size/area on IC chips; 2) extending ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) which limit the usage of magnetic materials for GHz applications; 3) developing efficient magnetic material integration process for manufacturing.
