Gary Wicks Homepage
Professor Wicks' research interests center around III-V semiconductors: epitaxial growth, optical properties and optical devices. Examples of his research include development of new techniques in molecular beam epitaxial growth; reduced dimensional structures such as quantum dots and superlattices; studies of III-V heterostructure interfaces with Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopies; and quantum dot lasers and infrared detectors.
