Jesus del Alamo
Jesús del Alamo is interested in transistors and other electronic devices.
Jesús del Alamo is the Donner Professor in MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He has worked on silicon solar cells and a range of transistors and heterostructure devices, and investigated quantum-effect devices based on AlGaAs/GaAs heterostructures. His current research focuses on the physics, technology, modeling and reliability of new III-V compound semiconductor field-effect transistors for future logic, high-frequency and power applications. He is also interested in novel devices for analog computing, and the physics of GaN transistors for RF power amplification and power switching applications. Before coming to MIT, del Alamo worked on semiconductor electronics at NTT LSI Laboratories in Japan, and silicon photovoltaics at the Institute of Solar Energy of Polytechnic University of Madrid. His awards include the Louis D. Smullin Award for Excellence in Teaching and Amar Bose Award for Excellence in Teaching. He earned an MS and PhD from Stanford University.
