  • Grad Student Recognized for Nanowire Work
May 2007
ShadiDayeh.jpgFor his work on how semiconducting nanowires grow and behave, Shadi A. Dayeh, a University of California, San Diego graduate student and PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Jacobs School of Engineering, has recently earned several awards. Nanowires -- crystalline fibers about one thousandth the width of a human hair -- hold promise as LEDs, photovoltaics, biological and chemical sensors, nanopipes for optical communications, and other applications, once fundamental questions are answered about how they work. At the Materials Research Society meeting in April, Dayeh was awarded the graduate student "silver medal" for his body of research on the synthesis and fabrication of compound semiconducting nanowires and devices for novel electronics, and a best poster award for research on field-, diameter-, and surface state-dependent transport behavior in semiconducting nanowires. In January 2007, Dayeh received a Young Scientist Award at the 34th Conference on the Physics & Chemistry of Semiconductor Interfaces for the systemic study of carrier transport properties in InAs nanowire field-effect transistors. He also won a best paper award at the 2006 Electronic Materials Conference for helping to resolve a debate regarding which mechanism governs the growth of III-V compound semiconducting nanowires.  Dayeh and colleagues recently published research demonstrating the potential for using InAs nanowires for high-speed nanoelectronics and providing analysis that enables accurate parameter extraction from such devices.

optical communications
The transmission and reception of information by optical devices and sensors.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
