Q. D. Zhuang gained his Ph.D from the Institute of Semiconductors , Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1999 for research into the Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) growth of low-dimensional compound semiconductors and the applications for infrared optoelectronics. From 1999~2001, he was Research Fellow at the Nanyang Technological University , Singapore , continuing work on nanostructures and optoelectronics. He moved to the University of Glasgow In 2001, to pursue research in the MBE growth of dilute nitride and its applications on VCSEL operating at wavelength of 1.3 m m, and to take the responsibilities to supply wide range high quality epitaxial wafers to the department and external commercial customers. He joined Lancaster University as Lecturer in 2004. He is responsible to establish and maintain MBE system in Mid-infrared Optoelectronics Research Group .

Research Interests

His research interests are particularly concerned with MBE growth processes and characterizations of III-V semiconductors, nanostructors, and optoelectronics:

• MBE growths of GaAs-based, InP-based and Sb-based compound semiconductors

• Nanostructures such as In(Ga)As/GaAs, InAs/InP quantum dots and quantum wires

• Optoelectronic devices including VCSELs, Lasers, LEDs, and infrared photodetectors

• Characterizations of semiconductors by apparatuses of Double Crystal X-ray Diffraction, Photoluminescence, Hall measurement, Atomic Force Microscope, SEM, and TEM etc.
