Anhar Bhuiyan

Advanced Microelectronics & Epitaxy Lab​

Welcome to our Advanced Microelectronics and Epitaxy Lab website at University of Massachusetts Lowell.

Our lab is dedicated to synthesize, investigate and understand the fundamental material properties of wide and ultra-wide bandgap semiconductors by utilizing a variety of material deposition and advanced characterization techniques. We are also interested in semiconductor device physics and specialized in the design and fabrication of novel devices for next generation of high-power and high-frequency electronic and optoelectronic applications.

PhD Positions Available from Fall 2024

Currently, there is a fully funded PhD position opening in our group starting from Fall-2024. Prospective PhD students will have the opportunity to engage in the epitaxial growth and characterizations of novel oxide and nitride materials, TCAD modeling, simulation and fabrication of semiconductor devices for next generation high power electronic and ultraviolet optoelectronic applications. 

To Apply: Please email Prof. Bhuiyan at with CV, BS/MS unofficial transcripts, GRE and TOEFL/IELTS scores, indicating your academic background, prior research experience, and publications.

Undergraduate Student Researchers: Undergraduate students at UMass Lowell who are interested in epitaxial growth of electronic materials and semiconductor device modeling research are encouraged to reach out to Prof. Bhuiyan at to explore potential research opportunities.
