UMass Lowell will resume on-campus instruction, research and campus life for Fall 2020. View the plan for more info.


The Advanced Electronics Technology Center's research mission is development of reliable manufacturing for giga-scale miniaturization technology, to be performed in linkage with supporting companies. Current projects, AETC is focusing on:

  • High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMTs) with Tailored Field (TF)
  • Development of novel quantum well transistors
  • Measurements of noise in amplifiers
  • Systems for information coding and scrambling
  • Optoelectronics for Forensic Investigations and for Perimeter Security Systems.
  • Electronics for bio-engineering. Infrared medical diagnostics. Contactless fingerprint technology. Measurements of biological currents and voltages. For more information about the lab and the projects, check the link of Prof. Sam Milshtein Biomedical lab
  • Low-cost test methodologies for complex system-on-chips – project A: Adaptable design-for-testability (DFT) methods for digital and mixed-signal circuits; – project B: Non-intrusive signal analysis of multi-GHz clocked circuits
  • Emerging design-for-reliability and testability techniques and methodologies – project: Reliability and life-testing of compound semiconductors
  • Low-power high-bandwidth architectures for parallel processing – project: Adaptable processing-in-memory based architectures terahertz circuit design - project: Room temperature ballistic terahertz transistors and circuits.
