My prime field of interest is semiconductor spintronics, a field of electronics in which the spin of an electron as well as its charge is used for data storage and manipulation. In particular my group is working on the development of a ferromagnetic semiconductor which could be used to inject spin-polarized currents into traditional semiconductors. We are focusing on the growth and characterization of wide-band gap semiconducting oxides doped with small amounts of magnetic transition metal elements. Our group has a wide array of state-of-the art materials growth and characterization capabilities.
