SHORT BIOGRAPHY & CV

Prof. Can Bayram is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research is in development and application of novel photonic and electronic devices.He invented GaN-on-Graphene and GaN-on-Si(100) technologies for novel device architectures. His work has been recognized widely. He is the recipient of a 2017 NSF CAREER Award, a 2016 AFOSR Young Investigator Award, the 2014 IEEE Electron Devices Society Early Career Award, and the Best Paper Award at the 11th International Conference on Infrared Optoelectronics.

His postdoctoral work at IBM on a novel means of thin film technology achieved record-breaking specific power solar cells and was featured on the cover of Advanced Energy Materials. He has - for the first time - integrated GaN-based devices on CMOS-compatible silicon substrates. This work was highlighted as the frontispiece in the Advanced Functional Materials issue. His thesis work has demonstrated the first ultraviolet regime single photon detection, the first hybrid LED, and the first GaN intersubband devices. He received IEEE Electron Devices and IEEE Photonics Societies' fellowship awards and the Laser Technology, Engineering and Applications Award from SPIE. He was an IBM and Link Foundation PhD fellow and the recipient of Boeing Engineering and Dow Sustainability Innovation awards.

Prof. Bayram is an affiliate faculty of Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory. He has (co-) authored 37 journal papers (h-index ≥ 20), 27 conference proceeding papers, 2 book chapters, and has ≥ 41 patents issued/pending. For his achievements in ultraviolet-to-terahertz engineering of III-V semiconductor materials and devices, SPIE and IEEE recognized him with senior member status. He worked as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY from 2011 till 2014. He received the Ph.D. degree from EECS of Northwestern University, IL with a focus on Solid State and Photonics in 2011.
