Research Interests:Far infrared spectroscopy of impurities in semiconductors is the theme of most of the 17 refereed articles published since 2001. These include publications in such well regarded journals as Physical Review B and Applied Physics Letters. Techniques employed include the application of high magnetic fields and cooling of samples to below 4.2 Kelvin. External stress is also applied including an innovative technique of controlled self stress at low levels. Grants received included ARC discovery, ARC linkage infrastructure, ARC linkage international and research infrastructure.
Current research interests are in the generation of THz radiation and its use in spectroscopy.
