Dr. Shayegan runs the Low-Dimensional Systems Lab in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. His research focuses on the fabrication and physics of low-dimensional semiconductor structures, with an emphasis on their electronic properties. This involves the growth of high quality Gallium Arsenide/Aluminum Gallium Arsenide (GaAs/AlGaAs) material by molecular beam epitaxy, followed by various lithography techniques to realize very clean (low-disorder) quantum-confined carrier systems. At low temperatures, the mobile carriers in such structures have mean-free-paths which often reach several microns, making these systems the cleanest in the world. Dr. Shayegan has won numerous awards, including a Princeton University Graduate Student Mentoring Award, Alexander von Humboldt Prize, and a Fulbright Fellowship. He was also the recipient of an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, an IBM Faculty Development Award, and a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award. Dr. Shayegan holds a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
