Research Interests

The Tamargo group investigate the growth and properties of semiconductor multilayers and nanostructures whose properties are of interest for fundamental physics and device applications. Their multi-chamber MBE growth system enables the design and growth of a wide range of hybrid structures that combine materials that are difficult to grow in a single chamber, resulting in materials with new and enhanced properties. The group collaborates with a multitude of laboratories within CUNY and beyond to explore the physics and potential applications of these materials.
