Profile Summary

Prof. Can Bayram is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL, USA. He is an expert in III-V materials and photonic and electronic devices. He has performed more than 3,000+ epitaxial growths with metalorganic chemical vapor deposition systems and fabricated detectors, light emitting diodes, solar cells, resonant tunneling diodes, and transistors in class 100 and 1000 cleanrooms totaling 20,000+ hrs equipment usage. His current research interests lie in the intersection of novel III-V materials, hetero-structures, and photonic and electronic quantum devices. Particularly, his research group explores novel materials, devices, and their 3D hetero-integration on unconventional platforms such as graphene and silicon and investigates heat transport across/through semiconductors; efficiency droop mechanisms and remedies in AlInGaN emitters; and ultra-fast THz photonics/electronics. Prof. Bayram's work has been recognized widely. He is the recipient of the 2018 International Union of Pure and Applied Physics Young Scientist Prize in Optics, the 2018 IEEE Nanotechnology Council Early Career Award, a 2018 Dean's Award for Excellence in Research for Assistant Professor, a 2018 Turkish American Scientists & Scholars Association Young Scholar Award, a 2017 NSF CAREER Award, the 2017 CS Mantech Best Student Paper Award, a 2016 AFOSR Young Investigator Award, the 2014 IEEE Electron Devices Society Early Career Award, and the Best Paper Award at the 11th International Conference on Infrared Optoelectronics.

Prof. Bayram is an affiliate faculty of Nick Holonyak, Jr Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory and Carle Illinois College of Medicine. He has (co-) authored more than 100 scientific contributions (h-index ≥ 23). For his achievements in ultraviolet-to-terahertz engineering of III-V semiconductor materials and devices, OSA, SPIE, and IEEE recognized him with senior member status.
