Dr. Stefan Strauf of physics at Stevens receives NSF CAREER Award for quantum research
Date:2/1/2011

the quantum dots are damaged in such a way that they cannot emit sufficient light to be useful in scientific applications. Advances in etching technologies, such as the advent of inductively coupled plasma (ICP) etching, can overcome these problems and initial research shows that vertical quantum dots can be made with brightness comparable to self-assembled quantum dots. If successful, the research is transformative, since the anticipated scalable quantum photonic devices enable novel applications in on-chip quantum information processing, quantum communication, quantum lithography, and national security.

This award leverages existing NSF funding, including a recent NSF-MRI award, for which Dr. Strauf is co-PI, supporting the purchase of an ICP etcher. Work will also be carried out at Brookhaven National Lab under a granted user proposal. Graduate student researchers, supported in part by this CAREER Award, will work at both Stevens and Brookhaven's world-class facilities.

"Prof. Strauf is doing research at the forefront of physics, and this CAREER award implies that his peers in the scientific community fully recognize the high quality of his work," reports Dr. Knut Stamnes, Department Director for Physics and Engineering Physics. "He has built a first-class research laboratory at Stevens, mentors six graduate students with whom he publishes his work in letter journals, and motivates and inspires all members of our department and the Stevens nanotechnology community through his dedication, persistence, and perseverance."

As part of Stevens large effort in nanoscale research, the university offers the interdisciplinary Nanotechnology Graduate Program, in which Dr. Strauf is actively involved teaching core courses. His CAREER Award will further support the development of a Nanophysics Summer School, which will introduce nanotechnology research in physics to undergraduates as well as regional K-12 science teachers.
