1. Vision statement

Nanoelectronics and photonics (NEP) involve the synthesis and fabrication of semiconductor-based nanostructure materials and devices. The unique electrical and optical properties of nanostructures result in improved electrical performance and novel optical characteristics, particularly in the visible and infrared parts of the spectrum. These NEP devices either increase the fundamental operating limits of, or open new windows of opportunities for, applications in optoelectronics, biomedical and telecommunications industries.

Current NEP research activities mainly focus on the engineering of III-V compound semiconductors into various nanostructures: quantum dots, quantum dot molecules, quantum wells, quantum rings. Using molecular beam epitaxy, these quantum structures are routinely grown at sub-monolayer thicknesses and precisions, allowing electronic and photonic properties to be engineered at the material level. They are then inserted into standard device structures such as p-n junction, heterojunction, or distributed Bragg reflector to create real-world devices such as light-emitting diodes, transistors, lasers, photodetectors and solar cells—devices that affect how we work, live and play.
