Description

Research focuses on the electrical and quantum transport behavior of semiconductor materials, structures, and devices. A wide variety of state-of-the-art electrical and magnetotransport techniques and equipment are available, including for low temperatures and high magnetic fields. Areas of specific interest include novel materials/devices made from graphene and other relevant materials, as well as advancing characterization methods for properties induced by quantum confinement in reduced dimensional structures (quantum wells, superlattices, heterostructures, quantum wires, and quantum dots). The interaction of biological molecules with these structures produces behavior that can be harnessed into novel bioelectronic devices. Emphasis is placed on understanding fundamentals and technologically relevant properties for developing accurate measurement techniques and tools.
