Opening for Undergraduate students

There are openings for undergraduate students to gain experience in either research (nanotechnology) or curriculum development. A deep interest and working knowledge of basic physics / math / programming apart from an interest in applications is a prerequisite. I typically prefer to work withstudents who have taken EE 331 (in case of EE students) or a basic quantum mechanics course (in case of physics students).

Please apply only if you are very serious and are able to commit at least eight hours per week. These are unpaid positions where you can choose to get credit via EE 499.

Examples of topics that my undergraduate students have worked on are:

Research

  • Code development to find energy levels of nanowires using the tight binding method
  • Modeling of electromechanical properties of nanowires
  • Self energies for time-dependent Green's function calculations
  • Modeling silicon photodetector response

 

Curriculum Development

  • Basic Electric Circuits Labs: updating, improving clarity (Nava Aghdasi)
  • Circuits and Devices I (Johnson Jew)
  • Introduction to Nanodevice (Yiqun Chen)
  • Solid State Device Lab Development (James Mracek)
  • Introduction to Nanodevice (Yiqun Chen)

 

Publications that involved significant contribution from undergraduate students

  • A. Fadavi, G. Li, S. S. Saini, Nixon O, M. P. Anantram, Highly Sensitive Silicon-on-Insulator, Nanowire based Photodetector, IEEE NANO 2011
  • Y. Kong, D. Shiri, A. Buin, First-principle investigation of strain effects on the electronic properties of germanium nanowires, physica status solidi (RRL), vol. 3, p. 281 (2009)
  • D. Shiri, Y. Kong, A. Buin, M. P. Anantram, Strain induced change of bandgap and effective mass in silicon nanowires, D. Shiri, Y. Kong, A. Buin, and M. P. Anantram, Appl. Phys. Lett., vol. 93, p. 073114 (2008)
