Binh-Minh Nguyen received an engineer degree from Ecole Polytechnique, France and a doctoral degree from Northwestern University, USA in 2005 and 2010 respectively. Prior to joining Los Alamos National Lab as a Director's Postdoctoral Fellow in 2012, he was a Research Assistant Professor at the Center for Quantum Devices, Northwestern University.
His research interests include band structure modeling, epitaxial growth and device physics of semiconductor optoelectronic/electronic devices. Currently, he is working on exploring transport mechanisms in one-dimensional Si/Ge core/shell nanowire structures, and developing novel electronic/optoelectronic devices based on this material system.
He is the author/co-author for five book chapters and has more than 50 scientific papers published in refereed journals and international proceedings. He serves as a frequent reviewer for many journals of the Institute of Physics, the American Institute of Physics, the Optical Society of America and Elsevier. Nguyen is recipient of a SPIE Educational Scholarship in Optical Science and Engineering in 2009 and 2010; an IEEE Photonics Society 2010 Graduate Student Fellowship and the Edward G. Weston 2010 Summer Fellowship from the Electro Chemical Society (ECS).
