Assistant Professor Mark Wistey of Notre Dame’s Department of Electrical Engineering was recently named the recipient of the 2013 North American Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE) Young Investigator Award at the 30th NAMBE conference held October 5-11, 2013 in Banff, Canada. 

Sponsored by the North America MBE Advisory Board, the Young Investigator Award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the science and technology of MBE (or whose research is enabled by MBE) by the age of 35 and who show promise of future leadership in the field.

As part of the award, Prof. Wistey delivered an invited plenary lecture titled
“Development of Device Quality Dilute Nitrides: Lessons from Growth of Unstable Materials.”  The citation on his award read, "For pioneering development of dilute nitride antimonide quinary alloys by MBE and demonstration of the first monolithic long wavelength VCSELs on GaAs."

Prof. Wistey joined Notre Dame’s faculty in 2009 after completing his graduate education at Stanford University and post-doctoral appointments at Arizona State and UC Santa Barbara.  He received his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Montana State University.
