All aspects of semiconductor research are covered in the program including materials science, physics and engineering.

Examples include:

  • Materials: Epitaxy, fabrication, characterization and theoretical properties of Si, Ge, III-Vs (including III-Nitrides), II-Vs, organic semiconductors, hybrid organic/inorganic systems and perovskites. Bulk materials and nanostructures including quantum dots/wires/wells and superlattices. 2D materials including transition metal dichalcogenides.
  • Physics: Electronic and optical properties, photonic bandgap structures ,spintronics, quantum information processing, resonant tunnelling, transport, and magnetic semiconductors.
  • Engineering: All electronic devices from single electron structures through to high-mobility transistors and post Si-C-MOS. All optoelectronic devices from  LEDs, laser diodes and photodetectors, through to cutting-edge, high-power lasers and photovoltaics.
