Mechnical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, The University of Toledo, Ohio.

Recently, carbon nanostructures, such as buckyballs, nanotubes, diamond, and graphene have attracted wide attention among scientific community because of their numerous possible applications in electronics and other industries. At present, carbon nanotubes have been investigated as an electronic material, photonic materials, mechanical material, and conductive materials. All of these applications indicated that carbon nanotubes have wonderful properties relevant to any of these advanced device requirements. Processing of nanostructure carbon, such as modification, manipulation, and doping of these nanotubes result in target properties. Therefore, processing of nanostructure carbon became really a complicated subject. Recent development of carbon based materials reaches to the selection of graphene as the next generation electronic device material. In this tutorial, wide range of materials, devices, and properties of nanostructure carbon will be reviewed based on recent literature. Also, possible applications and other opportunities related to carbon materials will be discussed.

Ahalapitiya H. Jayatissa (Jay) is an Assistant Professor in Mechnical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering at The University of Toledo (UT), Ohio. He received his MPhil (Photonics) and PhD (EE) degrees from the University of Ruhuna in 1991 and Shizuoka University in 1995, respectively. After graduation, he had obtained postdoctoral research experience at the Research Institute of Electronics at Shizuoka University, and Imaging Device Division at NHK Research Laboratory in Japan. He also worked at Materials and Chemistry Divisions in Argonne National Laboratory. His current research includes synthesis of carbon nanotubes and application of carbon nanotubes in gas sensors and piezoresistance devices. He was awarded the Faculty Early Career award from National Science Foundation in 2003. He has authored/coauthored more than 40 refereed papers and 42 proceedings. He is a senior member of IEEE and SME societies.

This tutorial will provide a broad overview of the research issues involved in Embedded Systems security domain. The topics we will touch upon are:

  • Hardware-based secure program execution,
  • Cryptographic components and processing overhead,
  • Types of attacks on embedded systems (Physical Invasive, Side-Channel),
  • Physically unclonable functions,
  • Watermarking of IPs,
  • FPGA security,
  • Passive and active metering for prevention of piracy,
  • Emerging threats and technologies.
