My group is studying theoretical aspects of high speed electronic devices based on bandstructure modification. In collaboration with Professor Bhattacharya's experimental MBE program we are developing new schemes for optoelectronic devices using excitonic effects in quantum wells; and we are exploring their application to optoelectronic systems for image recognition.

One crucial aspect of this research is a thorough knowledge of the growth mechanisms of the type of quantum well structures relevant to optoelectronic devices. With this in mind we have done extensive work on Monte Carlo simulations of strained heterostructure thin film growth.

Semiconductor device modeling, usually with the goal of producing physics-based compact models for employment in circuit simulators.
Devices currently under investigation are: HBTs in the GaAs, InP and SiGe material systems; BJTs in Si; UV photodetectors and HBTs in AlGaN; long-wavelength Quantum-Well Lasers; quantum transistors.
Presently, the emphasis of the HBT work is on quasi-ballistic transport and on analytical and equivalent-circuit models for ultra-high performance devices.
The UV photodetector work presently involves material characterization and heterojunction device design, with the aim of producing detectors with highly wavelength-selective responsivities.
