Logic and communications technologies beyond conventional Si CMOS
Director Physical Sciences Department
IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center
Supratik Guha is the Director of the Physical Sciences Department at IBM Research and in this capacity is responsible for overseeing IBM’s worldwide research in the physical sciences. His technical work, over the past dozen years, has been in the area of new materials for ultra-scaled silicon CMOS technology where he was responsible for some of the key materials used in IBM's high k metal gate technology, representing major changes in the way that a silicon transistor is built. More recently, his own research work has been on new materials for energy conversion devices and his research interests are in the areas of new materials for logic and energy conversion technologies. As a manager, he has established many successful research programs at IBM including ones in silicon nanophotonics, thermal physics, photovoltaics, and nanowire based technologies.. He received his Ph.D. in materials science from the University of Southern California in 1991, and a B. Tech in Metallurgical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, in 1985. Supratik is also an adjunct professor of materials science at Columbia University and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
