Far Infrared Studies of III-V and II-VI 2 and 3 Dimensional Semiconductors
Home About Workshops Articles Writing Talks Books Contact

I spent 6 years at Nottingham University carrying out studies of the properties of semiconductors at low temperatures and high magnetic fields under the excitation of Far Infrared (FIR). This work has lead to a PhD thesis (Nottingham, 1990) and 18 publications. This work was carried out using an FIR laser magnetospectroscopy system. The materials were grown at Nottingham using Molecular Beam Epitaxy where the FIR technique was used as a donor characterisation method.

My thesis abstract describes the work that was carried out and Chapter 2 of the thesis describes the equipment used giving a critical comparison between the various types of FIR lasers in use.
