My research is towards epitaxial growth, processing and characterisation of nanostructures. I am interested in the understanding of fundamental growth processes and materials properties, as well as the development of more applied structures.

Currently, my main interest is the impurity doping of nanowire materials, a so far relatively unexplored area. The results will be used to evalutate the potential of III-V nanowire structures for efficient solar energy harvesting, ultimately grown on silicon. Such impurity doping opens up a large field of interesting scientific exploration, from fundamental impurity doping characterization at the nano scale, to more applied research on high mobility transistors, high efficiency light emitting diodes, tunnel diodes, and electrically driven single photon emitters.
