About Tansu Group

Welcome to our research group at Lehigh! Our research group focuses on the physics and device technologies of semiconductor nanostructures for photonics and energy-efficiency applications. Our graduate students and postdoctoral scientists pursue the solutions for emerging technologies related to energy, communications, and biotechnology.

Multidisciplinary computational / theoretical and experimental research works are strongly encouraged and pursued in our group, and students / postdocs came from various disciplines including: Physics / Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering, Material Science Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Our group focuses on Applied Science and Engineering, where we employ fundamental knowledge derived from physics and chemistry in solving problems in engineering with technological impact. Several of the key applications pursued in our research group include: energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies (solid state lighting, solar cells, solar hydrogen, thermoelectricity, InGaN, AlInN, AlGaN, InN, MOCVD / MOVPE, quantum wells / dots), terahertz photonics (InGaN and InN quantum wells), semiconductor lasers for communications (InGaAsN and dilute nitride lasers), and sensor systems for environmental and biotechnology.
