Project: ESR on Growth and Characterisation of Dilute Nitride Ga(NAsP)/Si and (GaIn)(NAs)/GaAs for information and communication technology

Shalini Gupta

Shalini registered as a PhD student at Philipps-Universität Marburg, faculty of physics, and will carry out the majority of her research in the Materials Science Center, Structure and Technology Laboratory, working on the epitaxial growth and characterization of dilute nitride alloys for the development of using metal organic vapour phase epitaxy (MOVPE). The research will involve systematic MOVPE growth studies of various dilute nitride alloys, characterisation of the resulting materials using high-resolution X-ray diffraction, photoluminescence spectroscopy as well as atomic force microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Devices will also be fabricated and extensively tested in collaboration with other PROMIS partners.

She will join the Structure and Technology Laboratory and will be supervised by Prof. Kerstin Volz. She will work closely with other PROMIS researchers at Tyndall Tyndall-UCC, in ROME, at UCA as well as in SGENIA with a number of secondment visits to these partners.

Shalini came all the way from a small town called Beohari which is situated in the central part of India. She completed 5 years Integrated M.Sc. in Physics from UM - DAE Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences, Mumbai and now she has started working as a PhD Researcher in the framework of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN PROMIS 'Post Graduate Research on Dilute Metamorphic Nanostructures and Metamaterials in Semiconductor Photonics'. She has joined the group of Prof. Kerstin Volz at Phillips University of Marburg, Germany and is working on 'Synthesis and characterisation of dilute nitride Ga(NAsP)/Si and (GaIn)(NAs)/GaAs' for their application in information and communication technology.
