Welcome to Jackson’s Electronics Research Group!



Jackson’s Electronics Research Group (JERG) led by Dr. Thomas Jackson is a multidisciplinary research team that studies fabrication and applications of ZnO thin film transistors (TFTs) for a variety of applications such as flexible electronics, integration with electroceramic devices, biosensing, gas sensing and more. We use low-temperature plasma enhanced atomic layer deposition (PEALD) to fabricate ZnO TFTs on various substrates including borosilicate glass and flexible polymeric substrates. We also study 2D transition metal chalcogenide (TMDs) TFTs for flexible electronics.

Our group uses a wide variety of microfabrication, lithography and microfluidic technologies to build semiconductor devices and  investigate their potential applications as sensors and more.
