Dr. Zameer U. Hasan from Temple University will present a Colloquium titled ‘The Ice Age and Beyond: A New Paradigm in Miniaturization of Nano-Photonics and Electronics’ at 4:00 p.m. this Friday, April 23rd, 2010 in MAP 318. Dr. Hasan received his Ph.D. from Australia National University.
Research performed in Dr. Hasan’s group is covered by the field broadly described as Atomic Condensed Matter Physics in the optical energy range. It touches the interdisciplinary boundaries of Quantum Optics, Laser Physics, Materials Physics, Chemical Physics and Photonics. Our research efforts are directed towards gaining a better understanding of solids at the atomic level and the physical processes that are initiated when electromagnetic radiation interacts with matter. The ultimate goal is to exploit the condensed matter at the atomic scale in future applications miniaturizing photonics and electro-optics devices. Potential applications of our research include: high-density frequency domain optical storage, quantum computing, wide band optical communication, and semiconductor photonic devices, etc. Our research activities are divided between designing, fabricating and atomically tailoring exotic materials, on one hand, and performing high frequency and time resolution studies to investigate optical, electro-optical and magneto-optical properties of these materials. Recently, we have been studying rare earth doped II-VI and III-V materials in the form of micro-particles, nano-particles, thin films and multiple quantum well structures. These materials both undoped and doped with optically active ions are designed, synthesized, fabricated, and processed in our labs.
