Research expertise
Semiconductors for hostile environments, device physics and modeling, microelectronic device and sensor design and manufacturing, analog/RF/mixed signal circuit design and test

Hugh Barnaby joined the ASU faculty in 2004. Prior to coming to ASU, he was an assistant professor at the University of Arizona. His primary research focuses on the analysis, modeling, and experimental characterization of extreme environment effects in semiconductor materials, devices and integrated circuits. As part of this research, he also develops design and processing techniques that enable the reliable operation of electronics in these environments. In addition, Barnaby has ongoing research activities in wireless (RF and optical) IC and data converter design, radiation- and reliability-enabled compact modeling, and memristor technologies and applications. He has been an active researcher in the microelectronics field for 19 years in both industry and academics, presenting and publishing more than 100 papers during this time.
