The Epitaxial Materials Engineering Research Group at the University of Delaware is directed by Joshua Zide, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering. Our primary focus is on the growth of high-quality electronic materials for applications in energy conversion and (opto)electronics.

We are primarily interested in novel variations on III-V materials (e.g. metal/semiconductor nanocomposites and dilute bismuthides) and focus heavily on developing control of optical, electronic, and thermal properties for materials which can be applied in devices.
