PhD topic and brief description

  • At IBM we design optomechanical devices with the long term goal being the highly efficient transduction of signals from the electrical domain to the optical domain for potential application to quantum computing. My research focuses on the investigation of the potential of non-centrosymmetric III/V semiconductors such as GaP to create a link between the electrical domain and the optical domain utilizing the piezoelectric and optical properties of these semiconductors.
