Research Interests

My research interests include the optical properties of solids, modulation spectroscopy including studies of semiconductors, semiconductor microstructures, semiconductor surfaces/ interfaces and semiconductor devices. In the field of semiconductors, research is being carried out in In-situ monitoring of semiconductor growth/processing. the growth and characterization of diamondlike nanocomposite thin films, Raman scattering and the effects of uniaxial stress on the optical and transport properties of semiconductors and semiconductor microstructures.
