Jena is ISCS's 2012 Young Scientist

Deb Gillean • DATE: August 6, 2012

Debdeep Jena, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering, has been selected as the 2012 Young Scientist by the International Symposium for Compound Semiconductors (ISCS).  The award, established in 1986, acknowledges technical achievements in compound semiconductors by a scientist younger than 40 years on the first day of the symposium; this year’s symposium will be held August 27-30, 2012, at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

A Notre Dame faculty member since 2003, Jena’s research focuses on the growth and properties of III-V semiconductors and their application in high-speed devices and photovoltaics (solar cells) and on the investigation and development of nanostructured semiconducting materials such as graphene, nanowires and nanocrystals, and their device applications, and in the theory of charge, heat and spin transport in nanomaterials.
