Summary:
Current research interests are focused on the crystal growth of III-V semiconductors and the design and fabrication of electronic and optoelectronics devices. Recent work has focused on the design, growth, fabrication, and testing of GaAs- and InP based avalanche photodiodes (APDs) for applications such as single photon counting, fluorescence spectroscopy. cancer detection, and optical communications. Other projects are focused on developing mid-infrared optoelectronic devices (lasers and detectors) for applications such as high resolution molecular spectroscopy, trace gas monitoring, space based communications, air pollution analysis, non-invasive medical diagnostics, night vision, thermal imaging, and missile tracking.
