Research interests lie in electronics and photonics: semiconductor crystal growth; epitaxy and spectroscopy of self-assembling quantum nanostructures such as quantum wires, serpentine superlattices, and quantum dots in compound semiconductors; coupling of quantum dots to photonic crystals and microcavities; and conducting polymers and polymer devices. Characterization of these low dimensional structures is done through optical and capacitance spectroscopy techniques. A major goal is to manipulate and control optical properties of quantum dot emitters by coupling them to photonic crystals or microcavities.
