Specific Research Interests: 

  • Microscopic theory of nonlinear optics of semiconductor quantum well structures.
  • Quantum mechanics of interacting electrons and/or excitons in the semiconductor.
  • Electromagnetically induced transparency in quantum wells, Raman coherences, four-wave mixing in microcavities and optically induced polarization shift in quantum well Bragg structures.
  • Conceptual issues such as the bosonic aspects of quantum well excitons.


  • Ph.D., California Institute of Technology, 1983
