Prof. Dr. Paul M. KOENRAAD

University of Technology, Eindhoven, Netherlands

Specialization: Photonics and Semiconductor nanophysics

P. Koenraad has more than 20 years experience of research on III-V semiconductor heterostructures and is a leading expert on the application of scanning probe techniques in the study of nanostructures and impurities in semiconductors. His work is presently focused on the spintronic, electronic and photonic properties of individual self-assembled nanostructures and single impurities in a semiconductor material. In 2005 he was awarded the Dutch VICI grant that allows him to study magnetic impurities and nanostructures in III/V semiconductor materials. He co-authored more than 150 scientific papers and wrote several review papers and book chapters on his research activities.
