Wei Cao


Wei Cao was born in Taizhou, Jiangsu Province, China. He received his B.S. degree in physics from Nanjing University, China, in 2008 and M.S. degree in microelectronics and solid-state electronics from Fudan University, in 2011. During his master’s degree, he engaged in several research programs including design and theoretical demonstration of tunnel-FETs, investigation of gate leakage and quantum effects in nanowire-structured devices, as well as reliability of nanowire FETs. In Spring 2012, he joined Prof. Banerjee's research group at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and is currently working toward his Ph.D. degree in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His current research is focused on the design, fabrication, and circuit exploration of ultra-low sub-threshold swing FETs.
