Properties of Semiconductor Materials and Devices

These researchers are working on the electronic structure and related properties of semiconductor materials and novel devices. Recent research by this group has centered on electron transport simulations for large band-gap III-nitride materials and carbon nanotubes using the Monte Carlo technique. The current focus is the creation of device models for large gap semiconductor devices, in particular III-nitride sensors and devices fabricated from organic materials. Future work may also include spintronic devices.
