Profile Summary

Can Bayram is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, a resident faculty at the Nick Holonyak, Jr Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, and an affiliate faculty of the Carle Illinois College of Medicine and Health Care Engineering Systems Center of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL, USA.

He is an expert in III-V materials and photonic and electronic devices. He has performed more than 3,000+ epitaxial growths with metalorganic chemical vapor deposition systems and fabricated detectors, light emitting diodes, solar cells, resonant tunneling diodes, and transistors in class 100 and 1000 cleanrooms totaling 20,000+ hrs equipment usage. His current research interests lie in the intersection of novel III-V materials, hetero-structures, and photonic and electronic quantum devices. Particularly, his research group explores III-V materials and novel devices, hetero-integration of III-Vs on unconventional platforms such as graphene and silicon, heat transport across/through semiconductors, efficiency droop mechanisms and remedies in AlInGaN emitters, and ultra-fast THz photonics/electronics.

Prof. Bayram's work has been recognized widely. He is the recipient of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics Young Scientist Medal, IEEE Nanotechnology Council Early Career Award, an NSF CAREER Award, a CS Mantech Best Paper Award, an AFOSR Young Investigator Award, the IEEE Electron Devices Society Early Career Award, and a Best Paper Award at the 11th International Conference on Infrared Optoelectronics. For his achievements in ultraviolet-to-terahertz engineering of III-V semiconductor materials and devices, OSA, SPIE, and IEEE recognized him with senior member status.
