National and Kapodistrian University of Athens Semiconductor and Microsystems Laboratory Solid State Physics Section Department of Solid State Physics Research The Semiconductor and Microsystems Laboratory focuses generaly on  understanding the behavior of semiconducting materials and devices,  microelectromechanical system based devices, composite polymer materials and reliability. Fundamental experimental and computational studies enable the identification and understanding of the underlying mechanisms for the observed phenomena. The lab exploits these unique properties to improve the performance of semiconducting and engineer composite materials. The study under conventional and high stress condictions of materials and devices  leads to the design of increased reliability thus leading to high performance micro/nanoelectronics.
