Semiconductor Physics Group
Dr.Umar Saeed Qurashi
Major Research Facilities:
- The experimental techniques used for characterization of defects include junction space-charge transient techniques, such as Deep Level Transient Spectroscopy (DLTS), Optical-DLTS and Photocapacitance, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy for optical absorption studies.
CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES:
- The principal area in the Semiconductor Physics Laboratory is the study of defects in crystalline semiconductors.
- The crystalline semiconductors under study in the laboratory include both elemental semiconductors, such as Si and III-V compounds, such as GaP, GaAsP, AlGaAs and InP.
- The group has also interest on Nitride Semiconductors, Alternative Energy, Solid State Lighting, Semiconductor Spintronics.
