Nanoscale Characterization and Devices Laboratory

We conduct research on new semiconductor materials and advanced electronic and optoelectronic devices, and are concerned broadly with the understanding, manipulation, and application of the electronic, optical, and other properties of solid-state materials and devices at the nanoscale. To these ends, our laboratory incorporates efforts in advanced materials characterization, particularly using proximal probe techniques; micro- and nanofabrication; device characterization and analysis of device physics; and numerical modeling and simulation. Current areas of interest include the following:

  • photovoltaics and other technologies for energy harvesting, generation, and storage
  • nanoscale imaging and characterization techniques, particularly based on proximal probes
  • oxide semiconductor materials and devices
  • solid-state nanostructure physics and devices generally
