Abstract:

This research focuses on efforts underlying the enhancement of the performance of nanostructure-based sensors and electronic-optoelectronic devices. These include initial designs of novel single-well--double-well photodetectors that significantly enhance the signal-to-noise ratio of photodetectors relying on phonon-assisted transitions as well as photon absorption events the use of colloidal quantum dots as optoelectronic elements investigating novel nanostructures including graphene and CNTs as contacts as components of quantum-dot based optoelectronic devices investigating confined phonon effects in novel components of the integrated nanostructure-based optoelectronic structures investigating full-tensor piezoelectric properties of nanostructures including nanowires and the investigation of photodetector structures from these nanostructures and conducting polymers.
