Physical Electronics, Photonics and Magnetics Plan of Work

Suggested courses for Physical Electronics, Photonics and Magnetics

The quantum phenomena of nanoscale structures can be used to discover and engineer effects that can be usefully employed for high performance computing and telecommunications applications, and for advanced concepts in sensor biophysics devices. Research interests focus on semiconductor physics and modeling of electronic and optoelectronic devices in the nanoscale, low dimensional effects, quantum effects, quantum information processing/computing, molecular electronics, bionics/biological computing, and phonon processes in nanostructures.
