Dr. Yaish is a faculty in electrical and computer engineering at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. He professional interest is focused on electrical, mechanical ,and optical coupling of 1D materials such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and silicon nanowires (SiNWs) and 2D materials such as graphene, TMDs, hBN, etc. These nano-materials and nano-structures posses unique physical properties which make them ideal candidates for studying both basic science and technological applications.
His main current research activities address the following topics:
- We utilize mechanical resonators from these materials and study dissipation phenomena at the nano scale, non-linear behavior, mode mixing, and mechanical qubit for quantum research.
- Artificial atoms (quantum dots) embedded within 1D and 2D heterostructures.
- Tunneling physics between different materials and dimensions.
- Charge and Spin transport within low D materials for classical and quantum electronics.
- Non-volatile memory cells, memristors, and atomristors based on 1D and 2D materials.
