Research Summary:

Dr. Tsai's main research theme is the design and application of advanced control, simulation, signal processingoptimization, and machine learning techniques to solve nanolithography and general nanotechnology related problems, with a current focus on the design and fabrication techniques of exploratory nanoscale integrated circuits at the ITRS 10 nm half-pitch node (aka "5 nm node") and beyond. He also has research activities on control system design automation, biomedical equipment design, automotive electronics, and consumer electronics such as audio-visual systems. His research group at the Nanoscale Design and Fabrication Systems Lab (NDFSL), Particle Beam Precision Patterning and Imaging Lab (PBPPIL), and High-Performance Servo Systems Lab (HPSSL) has been studying topics including, e.g.,

(1) Nanolithography processes and equipment: Next-generation lithography (NGL) based on multiple-charged-particle-beam-direct-write (MCPBDW), extreme ultraviolet (EUV) light, and directed self-assembly (DSA); Ion beam imaging and patterning. (2) Nanolithography software: Lithography/etching simulation, model calibration, and resolution enhancement techniques (RETs); Design for manufacturability (DFM); Charged-particle optics design optimization. (3) Nanolithography process and equipment control: Advanced process control (APC), advanced equipment control (AEC), and fault detection/classification (FDC); High-accuracy alignment and overlay algorithms; Optimal lens adjustment. (4) Circuit design automation by control and optimization techniques: Analysis and design of actuation/sensor/power circuits; Automatic circuit/layout generation and optimization. (5) Sensor/actuator array systems, signal processing, and real-time control: Electron-beam position monitor system based on MEMS and sensor fusion technologies. Mixed-signal circuit design for laser interferometers. High-performance motion systems, e.g. micro laser scanning mirrors. Laser speckle reduction. ADAS sensor analysis and robustness evaluation. (6) Automotive electronic systems: Permanent magnet synchronous motor control system analysis and design for mild hybrid vehicles. Active/semi-active suspension systems. (7) Controller design for multirotor aircrafts.

Dr. Tsai is open to establishment of new research topics based on student interests and industry demands.
