Research focus

The semiconductor optoelectronics group conducts research in diverse areas related to semiconductor optoelectronic devices, terahertz devices, optical and terahertz ultrafast spectroscopy, experimental condensed matter physics, and the optical and electronic properties of semiconductor nanostructures.

The underlying themes behind most of the research carried out by the group is the engineering of the properties of electrons and photons in semiconductor micro and nano structures to realize novel devices, study new science at small scales in both space (micro- and nano-sized devices) and time (ultrafast devices), and use novel physics to solve engineering problems and tackle scientific challenges in the development of new technologies.
