Mihir joined UCSB in Fall 2011 and started working with the group, in Spring 2012, on low temperature VIS-IR spectroscopy and transmission spectroscopy of various III-V semiconductors. As part of his PhD, he is now working on MBE growth of narrow band gap III-V semiconductors and ferromagnets for quantum computing and spintronics applications. He is also working on in-situ characterization with low temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscopy & Atomic/Magnetic Force Microscopy in a superconducting 3-axis vector magnet environment and in-situ Magneto Optic Kerr Effect measurement.
