Summary of Activities/Interests

Research Interests:  Prof. Hoffman's mid-infrared and THz optoelectronics research is focused on understanding quantum phenomena for the development of new optical materials, sources, and detectors.  Much of his work focuses on quantum engineering, where hundreds of layers of extremely thin semiconductors are designed to form a material with customized optical, electrical, and quantum properties.  These designer materials are fabricated into devices that are characterized in his laboratory.  

Prof. Hoffman's research group is always looking for new undergraduate researchers, graduate students, and post-doc.  If you are interested, please contact him directly. 

Courses: EE40478 - Introduction to Quantum Computing; EE60556 - Fundamentals of Semiconductor Physics


Notre Dame Researchers Open Path to New Generation of Optical Devices

June 22, 2017

Cameras, telescopes and microscopes are optical devices that measure and manipulate electromagnetic radiation [light]. Being able to control the light in these devices provides more information through a better “picture” of what is occurring. Specifically, controlling light on small scales could lead to improved optical sources for applications that span health, homeland security and industry.
