Herbert Kroemer Chair in Materials Science

Research interests lie in novel electronic materials, including wide bandgap semiconductors (III-V nitrides, II-VI compounds, oxides); physics and chemistry of hydrogen interactions with solids, liquids and molecular systems; and storage and production of hydrogen for photochemical cells. First-principles computational techniques (density-functional theory and pseudo-potentials) are used to study atomic and electronic structure of crystalline, polycrystalline and amorphous materials; interfaces, surfaces, and defects; and semiconductor heterojunctions and superlattices.
