Pallab Bhattacharya

Pallab Bhattacharya is the Charles M. Vest Distinguished University Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the James R. Mellor Professor of Engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He received the M. Eng. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Sheffield, UK, in 1976 and 1978, respectively. Professor Bhattacharya was an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices and is Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Physics D. He has edited Properties of Lattice-Matched and Strained InGaAs (UK: INSPEC, 1993) and Properties of III-V Quantum Wells and Superlattices (UK: INSPEC, 1996). He has also authored the textbook Semiconductor Optoelectronic Devices (Prentice Hall, 2nd edition). His teaching and research interests are in the areas of compound semiconductors, low-dimensional quantum confined systems, nanophotonics and optoelectronic integrated circuits. He is currently working on highspeed quantum dot lasers, quantum dot infrared photodetectors, photonic crystal quantum dot devices, and spin-based heterostructure devices. From 1978 to 1983, he was on the faculty of Oregon State University, Corvallis, and since 1984 he has been with the University of Michigan. He was an Invited Professor at the Ecole Polytechnic Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland, from 1981 to 1982. Professor Bhattacharya is a member of the National Academy of Engineering. He has received the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, the IEEE (EDS) Paul Rappaport Award, the IEEE (LEOS) Engineering Achievement Award, the Optical Society of America (OSA) Nick Holonyak Award, the SPIE Technical Achievement Award, the Quantum Devices Award of the International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors, and the IEEE (Nanotechnology Council) Nanotechnology Pioneer Award. He has also received the S.S. Attwood Award, the Kennedy Family Research Excellence Award, and the Distinguished Faculty Achievement Award from the University of Michigan. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, the American Physical Society, the Institute of Physics (UK), and the Optical Society of America.
