Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University

Research interests

His field of research activity is the electrical properties of thin films and microstructures of semiconductors and solid-state physics. His current research at Princeton is on the fundamental properties of electronic materials, especially conduction in ultrasmall structures, transport through heterojunctions, heterojunction transistors, and quantum physics of electronic materials in strong magnetic fields and low temperatures, in particular, the quantum Hall regime.
