Prof. William (Bill) Milne


Research interests

Research interests include large area metal oxide and carbon based electronics, thin film materials and, most recently, MEMS, carbon nanotubes and other low-dimensional structures for electronic applications. Current projects include optimization of CNTs and graphene for field emission applications especially for portable x-ray systems. Other main interest at present is in the use of an SOI platform for Gas sensing application in collaboration with a start-up company Cambridge CMOS Sensors [founders, Florin Udrea, Bill Milne and Julian Gardner (Warwick University)].

The use of Graphene for high frequency applications is also being carried out where a major push is towards application in the terahertz range.
