Hybrid Photonic Devices

The complexity of novel electronic, photonic and spintronic devices based on new generations of materials necessitates a development of increasingly sophisticated simulation tools that make possible to gain insight into new physical phenomena and to exploit them to enhance device functionalities and performance. In this project, we will focus on development of modeling tools that take into account the influence of defects (point and extended) on electrical and optical properties of materials. The developed tools will be used to facilitate the design of new generations of light and multi-spectral detectors that provide enhanced battlefield awareness to the soldier, high efficiency light emitters for illumination and bio-chemical threat detection, and to design and optimize energy efficient wide band gap power and radio frequency devices of critical interest to the Army.
