Profile Summary

Binh-Minh Nguyen is a Senior Research Engineer in the Sensors and Electronics Laboratory at HRL Laboratories. Prior to joining HRL in 2014, he received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University and helped positions in diverse research environment such as Research Assistant Professor at Northwestern University, technical director of a small business, director’s postdoctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Lab.

Nguyen has over 10 years of focused experience in developing superlattice–based infrared detectors and imagers, encompassing the areas of device modeling/design, epitaxial growth, device fabrication and testing. He is also involved in nanoscale epitaxy and nanofabrication of III-V and Ge/Si semiconductors for applications including solar cells, field effect transistors and topological quantum computation.

Nguyen has authored/co-authored six book chapters, more than 80 technical papers with over 2700 citations and an h-index of 32. He was recipient of a SPIE Educational Scholarship in Optical Science and Engineering in 2009 and 2010; an IEEE Photonics Society 2010 Graduate Student Fellowship and the Edward G. Weston 2010 Summer Fellowship from the Electro Chemical Society (ECS).
