WELCOME TO NANOSCIENCE AND QUANTUM ENGINEERING RESEARCH GROUP
Our research involves growth, fabrication, modeling, and characterization of quantum and nano to microscale structures and devices.
Thermoelectric generators can convert body heat to electrical energy providing a continuous source of energy for low power electronics. Small and lightweight thermoelectric generators can be integrated into wearable devices making battery-less devices a reality....
Perhaps the most vibrant areas across the landscape of physics research today lie here in the study of “Quantum Materials”. They are to be the steppingstone toward quantum computing and the frontier of new and exciting physics. But what are the quantum materials and...
In a multi component nanocrystalline material, crystallites and interfacial nanostructures form a disordered morphology. In such a disordered nanostructured material, the energy disruption for both electrons and phonons can happen in a time scale that is smaller or...
Coherent Potential Approximation (CPA) There is currently no quantum mechanical transport model for charge (or phonon) transport in multiphase nanocrystalline structures. Due to absence of periodicity, one cannot apply any of the elegant theorems, such as Bloch's...
The market for hydrogen is vast consisting of recent demand for renewable energies and industrial and chemical processes needs such as methanol production, ammonia (NH3), removing sulfur from gasoline, float glass production, edible fat hydrogenation, weather...
Ultrafast laser pump-and-probe experiments can be used to probe carrier dynamics in electronic materials. The transient reflectivity and/or transmission measurement is an important application of the mode locked laser. Such lasers have been used to determine the...
