The Centre for Electronics Frontiers looks at some of the biggest challenges facing the world today and attempts to solve them using our exceptional knowledge. We have key strategic relationships with many industrial partners, Government agencies as well as numerous universities across the globe that allows us to achieve a high impact from our work.  

Please find our key research areas below.

AI hardware and Nanoelectronics 

 Prof Themis Prodromakis

Artificial intelligence is where electronics and computer science meet. It involves custom-designed hardware with complex algorithms and software. At CEF that is just what we do. Working at the cutting edge of AI developing the hardware to enable the next generation of AI to take shape.

Unconventional computing 

Dr Alexandrou Serb

Unconventional Computing deals with computing and information processing derived from or implemented in physical, chemical and biological systems. 


Dr Ioulia Tzouvadaki

Inflammatory markers consist a pivotal tool in clinical practice since they allow detection of acute inflammation that might be an indicator of specific diseases, or to enable signalizing the response of a patient to a specific medical treatment. 

Next-generation batteries 

Dr Theresa Schoetz

Modern electronic technologies are developing at an impressive pace, shaping today’s societies by making our world more connected, safer and cleaner.

Flexible and organic electronics 

Dr Dimitra Georgiadou

The quest for low-cost, lightweight, conformable and smart electronic devices has driven innovations in organic and hybrid semiconductors that can be printed at low temperatures on flexible substrates.

Beyond-CMOS electronics 

Dr Mari Napari

Atomic layer deposition is one of the key enablers of modern microelectronics, where the capability of depositing ultrathin films over vertical and high aspect ratio structures.

Sensor technologies 

Dr Jinfeng Li

At CEF we are developing Surface Acoustic Waves (SAW)-based sensor for structural health monitoring application, such as temperature, train and corrosion monitoring LNG tank

Radiation Hard Electronics

Dr Firman Simanjuntak

The high volume of an endless data stream from the satellites to the ground stations and the continuous demand for a faster data computation speed will soon overrun the capacity of the cloud data servers to process the information. In CEF, we envision off-earth cloud servers by enabling artificial intelligence hardware accelerators that can sustain the extreme cosmic radiations in the space environment. We are co-integrating the computation and sensory functions of nanodevices to render adaptive, self-reconfigure, self-repair electronics. This technology will not only significantly reduce space deployment and maintenance costs but also avoid human-risk in space.
