Prof. Zbig Wasilewski is internationally renowned for his contributions to the field of Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE), quantum-dot and quantum-well photonic devices such as THz Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCL), as well as quantum structures and device
Chris joined the MBE group in January, 2016 after graduating from the University of Calgary with a BSc in electrical engineering (minor in physics). He enjoys math and physics -- particularly their applications in engineering. During his undergrad, he explored using differential geometry to create better numerical methods in electromagnetism. In the MBE group, he plans to study intersubband polariton lasers.
Anthony joined the MBE group in Sept. 2016, after his graduation from the University of Waterloo with a BSc degree in Physics. He enjoys studying quantum physics and understanding phenomena of nanotechnology in a quantum mechanical point of view.
Ida acquired her undergraduate degree from the Materials Science and Engineering department at Sharif University of Technology in Iran and her master’s from the Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Waterloo.
Peyton (Yinqiu) Shi obtained her BSc degree in Physics from the University of Toronto in 2014. In the summer of 2013, she conducted a research project at Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany on Au-free InSb nanowires, which gave her much appreciation for nanotechnology. Peyton joined the group first as an M.Sc student in September, 2014.
Alan has a BSc degree in Physics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (2007) and MSc in Physics from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (2009). Before joining the Zbig's MBE group, Alan participated in various nano-photonics and biophysics research projects.
Julie was the first student of the MBE Lab. She completed her B.Sc. in Physics and Engineering in Europe (Paris, Brest and Barcelona). Her Master’s project deals with optimizing cleaning and preparation processes of Silicon substrates, epitaxial growth of Al/Si heterostructures and their characterization.
Jacky Wang joined Zbig's MBE team in 2013 when he was an exchange student from Soochow University. During the undergraduate years, he has taken over a national-level project in STITP. This project focused on the preparation and characterization of highly ordered nano array p-n junction materials with visible-light response.
