I am primarily studying transport in semiconductor nanowires of different materials such as InAs, InSb, GaSb, InP and their alloys. My current main research area is transport studies of Type II - broken gap GaSb-InAs junctions with a coaxial geometry, focusing on electron-hole interactions. I am also involved in research on low-power transistors based on InAs and InAs-GaSb nanowires.
During 2005-2009 I administrated and co-managed the EU project "NODE" (Nanowire-based One-Dimensional Electronics), which had 12 partners in Europe. In that project I was responsible for research on InAs nanowire low-power MOSFETs.
I also develop software that we use in the processing and characterization of nano-scale materials. An example is a program for semi-automatic design of electrode patterns accurately aligned to nanoscale objects, such as nanowires - click on the tab "Automatic Electrodes" to the right for more info.
