Ronald D. Schrimpf

Orrin Henry Ingram Professor of Engineering
Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Director, Institute for Space and Defense Electronics


Ron Schrimpf is the Director of the Institute for Space and Defense Electronics, which focuses on issues associated with using electronic devices in harsh environments. He works on semiconductor device physics, including designing, characterizing and simulating devices with nanometer scale feature sizes. The technologies with which he works include silicon FinFETs, ultra-thin silicon on insulator, GaN, and two-dimensional materials.
