Research Summary

Professor Jaramillo's research combines materials science, solid-state physics, and opto-electronic technologies. The Jaramillo Research Group’s projects address materials synthesis and properties, with an emphasis on making materials and demonstrating functionalities that are useful for microelectronics, integrated photonics, telecommunications, and photovoltaics. Focus areas include processing chalcogenide compound semiconductors, defect studies including persistent photoresponse, optical metrology, phase-change functionality, and controlled oxidation of chalcogenides.
