Optical Properties of 

Semiconductors and Nanostructures






The focus of our research is primarily on the optical properties of semiconductors and nanostructures.  We collaborate with several groups fabricating novel structures that exhibit interesting optical properties. By using spectroscopic ellipsometry, we study their optical behavior in both the transparent as well as the absorption region. While the optical properties in the transparent region are mainly useful in designing various optoelectronic devices using these structures, their behavior in the absorption region is useful to study numerous phenomena and is rich in physics. We have several projects that explore the optical properties of semiconductors as well as nanostructures.
