Experimental condensed matter physics

BS, Florida State University, 2011

Current projects: The relationship between terminating native oxide chemistry and InAs(100) two dimensional electron gas conductivity, The incorporation of Bi into GaAs using molecular beam epitaxy and the study of droplet formation and movement on the surface of GaAsBi

Research Description: New device technology is turning to III-V semiconductors to due their high electron mobility and small bandgaps. InAs and GaAs are of particular interest for the next generation of HEMT. Our group is particularly interested in the role the oxides, defects, droplets and interfaces play in the electronic capabilities of these materials. We specialize in molecular beam epitaxy growth of these materials to create unique and interesting systems to probe the fundamental physics.

I am interested in condensed matter experiment, more specifically semiconductor material research. I specialize in III-V semiconductor surface and interface characterization.
