Nanoscale Science Program - Spintronic Materials and Architectures Track

Associated Faculty: Huang, Labella 

This track focuses on compound semiconductor material properties and fundamentals of compound semiconductor thin-film growth for spintronic applications. The emphasis is on magnetic and nanomagnetic device architectures using single and compound semiconductors.

Foundations Courses: Because this track is part of the Nanoscale Science program, it is recommended that students wishing to prepare for it pursue the Nanoscale Science Qualifying Examination. Students without adequate background in the following subjects should take the corresponding Foundation Courses:

506 Crystallinity and Diffraction
506 Phase Equilibria
506 Kinetics & Transport
506 Mechanics of Materials
507 Quantum 1A
507 Quantum 1B
507 Molecular Materials
509 Nanoscale Device Principles
509 Surfaces and Interfaces
512 Quantum Theory of Solids II (3)

Track-Specific Coursework: Students must take 9 credits of track-specific coursework from the following list. Courses were selected to provide students with a solid foundation for their research in spin-based materials and architectures. 

615 Semiconductor Optoelectronic Devices and Nanophotonics (3)
616 Nanoelectronic Semiconductor Devices (3) 
621 Quantum Transport (3) 
625 Quantum Processes in Solids and Nanostructures (3) 
626 Quantum Processes in Solids and Nanostructures II (3)
