Postdoctoral Research Opportunities

Our group does not have an opening for a postdoctoral research scientist. Exceptions can be made for OUTSTANDING candidates who have extensive SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE FABRICATION expertise in a CLEANROOM environment. We also encourage SELF-, GOVERMENT- and COMPANY-funded candidates to apply. Postdoctoral candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Can Bayram directly via email (and should attach their CV and the contact information for at least two references) to inquire about the position/project openings.

Graduate Research Opportunities

Our group invites undergraduate and graduate students to apply for PhD thesis openings. Incoming and/or interested graduates are encouraged to browse the group webpage and contact Prof. Can Bayram directly via email (and should attach their CV and unofficial UG/GRAD transcripts) to inquire about the position/project openings.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Our group invites highly motivated undergraduates, currently enrolled at our University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, to join our research team. Particularly, students who wish to have experience in semiconductor devices and who are passionate about creating next generation photonic and micro/nano-electronic devices are welcomed. Please contact Prof. Can Bayram directly via email (and attach your CV and unofficial transcript showing your courses) to inquire about any position/project openings.

Samuel selected as a STEM Student of the Year

ONR ALERT Program Alumnus, Samuel, mentored by Yu-Chieh, is selected as a STEM Student of the Year by the Association of Old Crows (AOC).

Each year, AOC awards a $12,500 scholarship each to one male and one female student studying engineering or engineering technology and interested in working in the aerospace and defense industry. A generous donation from Raytheon Intelligence & Space funds this scholarship. This year, Samuel is selected as the winner!

Open Boundary Quantum LED Simulator is now available

Open Boundary Quantum LED Simulator (OBQ-LEDsim) is the next-generation self-consistent quantum-corrected drift-diffusion simulator that eliminates artificial boundaries between quantum wells and classical continuum. It

  1. Eliminates the discontinuities of carrier concentrations caused by the artificial boundary conditions,
  2. Numerically captures the wavefunction penetration into barriers and other regions,
  3. Models the recombination rates outside active regions with higher accuracy than the state-of-the-art software, and
  4. Models quantum-confined Stark effects and excitonic effects in various kinds of quantum well structures.
