  • Solid-state devices
  • Computational electronics
  • Nanoelectronics
  • Quantum devices

Director of Notre Dame’s Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano), Porod is the co-inventor of the Quantum-dot Cellular Automata (QCA) concept, a transistorless approach to computing. His research focuses on solid-state physics and its application to electronics, quantum devices and architectures for nanoelectronics, reliability, degradation, and breakdown, and the limits imposed by the laws of physics on computation. Porod is a fellow of both the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and serves as a distinguished lecturer for IEEE’s Circuits and Systems Society. He has authored more than 300 scholarly papers.
