I K M Reaz Rahman is a Ph.D. candidate in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences department at UC Berkeley, working under the supervision of Professor Ali Javey. He received a Master’s degree in 2020 and a Bachelor’s degree in 2017, both in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.
Before joining UC Berkeley, Reaz worked on modeling of nanoscale transistors and their impact with scaling. At present, his focus is on characterization of optoelectronic properties in low-dimensional systems.
Reaz’s research interests include study of novel optoelectronic materials at the nanoscale and their application in solid-state electronics. He is working on the control of growth orientation using quantum confinement in layered two-dimensional semiconductors, which could enable enhanced device performance and coherent integration with silicon photonics at room temperature processing. In addition, his work focuses on the optoelectronic properties of these layered semiconductors in nanoscale which could serve as potential quantum emitters.
