Special OSE and SPIE Seminar

"Photoluminescence Studies of InAs/InAsSb Type-II Infrared Superlattices"
E. Steenbergen, AFRLDr. Elizabeth Steenbergen
Research Electronics Engineer
Air Force Research Laboratory
Thursday, May 5, 12:30 PM
CHTM Room 101

InAs/InAsSb type-II superlattices are of interest for infrared detector applications due to their longer minority carrier lifetimes than those of InAs/(In)GaSb superlattices. The photoluminescence technique is extremely sensitive to energy levels below the bandgap, and temperature and excitation dependence is used to examine recombination through different energy states present in these superlattices.

Dr. Steenbergen is a research electronics engineer in the Nanoelectronics Materials Branch, Functional Materials Division, Space Vehicles Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, Kirtland Air Force Base, NM. Her research focus is type-II superlattices for infrared detection and infrared photoluminescence characterization of quantum semiconductor materials.

Dr. Steenbergen's research interests include semiconductor optoelectronic materials and devices, and she has authored and co-authored 1 book chapter, more than 20 peer-reviewed journal articles, 13 conference proceedings, 41 conference presentations, and 6 U.S. patents.
