Research

I am primarily studying transport in semiconductor nanowires of different narrow bandgap materials such as InAs, InSb, GaSb, InP and their alloys. Here we explore the electronic structure of novel crystal phases, and how these phases can be used in device structures and for transport physics.
One particular focus is quantum dots (artificial atoms) and coupled quantum dots (artificial molecules), where we investigate electron interactions and spin-physics.
