III-V semiconductor emitter and detector physics

We have a long standing reputation for research on the physics of semiconductor materials for application in optoelectronic devices.

What we are researching

Much progress continues to be made in understanding the loss of mechanisms in semiconductor laser diodes, and optimising devices for applications in optical communications at near-infrared wavelengths. Improved performance in these applications may be realised in new materials such as:

Other applications, such as displays and environmental sensors, operate in different wavelength ranges, and projects include:
