Our research group is studying the growth and characterization of unique semiconductor materials for use in a wide variety of electronic devices. Using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and other techniques, material structures with atomic level control are fabricated and analyzed. The development of these structures is currently focused on a fundamental understanding of energy applications and nanoelectronics such as solar cells (III-V multijunction photovoltaics, quantum dot solar cells), advanced CMOS devices, low-power transistors (InGaAs, InSb quantum wells), and materials for next-generation Li-ion batteries.
