Ph.D. Physics - University of Manitoba 1997

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.

The faculty, staff and students in the dept. of physics conduct research in over 40,000 sq. ft. of space that houses state of the art equipment. The faculty investigators have received nearly $40 M in federal and state funding to support their research activities.

I'd like to invite you to consider the persuit of graduate degrees in physics, particularyly the Ph.D. degree

Dr. Keith Jackson, Vice President of Research and Professor of Physics.


Charles A. Weatherford

The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Dept. of Physics is in the midst of a period of rapid progress. A new Ph.D. program, in addition to our existing B.S. and M.S. programs, in Physics, started in the Fall of 2001.

The research facilities and productivity have expanded at a rapid pace since that time. Undergraduate and graduate student support, including tuition support, is available for qualified students.
