Research in this area focuses on solid state devices and physics of semiconductor materials. This includes semiconductor device modeling and simulation, device fabrication, measurement and characterization, VLSI multilayered and thin film materials. The device structures I have worked with are transistors, radio-frequency and microwave and millimeter wave devices, optoelectronics, photodiodes, photovoltaics, and solar cells. Some of the related materials beside Silicon are Silicon Carbide, Gallium Aluminum Arsenide, Indium Phosphide ( and other related group of III-V), and Mercury Cadmium Telluride (group II-VI) and has recently extended my research to a series of magnetic materials and devices. The study of these devices and materials are important in the development of advanced electronics and computing systems, and are used in data storage memory systems, microprocessors, biomedical equipment and systems, radars, hand-held electronic devices, advanced sensors, microfluid, and numerous other nano/microelectronic devices. In the last few years I expanded my work to modeling and fabrication of nano-scale magnetic sensors (at NIST-Boulder). These sensors are used for magnetic targeting of therapeutic agents, such as drugs or genes, to a specific spot on the body, ferrofluids, magnetic recording and permanent magnets.
National Science Foundation - REACH Project at the University of Colorado Denver
National Science Foundation REACH students during an end of the semester gathering, spring â€™09. I am the mentor and the faculty advisor for those students that are in Electrical Engineering. This program is directed by Professor Gita Alaghband of the UCD Computer Science and Engineering Department.
