Research Advisor: Prof. Ali Javey

BETR Research Thrust: Photonics and Optical Interconnects


Vivian received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2017. Afterwards, she received a M.Phil. in Physics from the University of Cambridge where she worked on nanopore sensors for biomolecule detection in the research group of Professor Ulrich Keyser. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. under the supervision of Professor Ali Javey at the University of California, Berkeley and the Materials Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where she is working on optoelectronic devices.


Unconventional device architectures may open up unexpected opportunities for optical and electronic devices and sensors. For example, the range of luminescent materials that can be easily integrated in electroluminescent devices is typically limited due to material processing and band alignment issues. This hinders the development of electroluminescent devices at extreme wavelengths and the use of electroluminescence spectroscopy as an analytical technique. Currently, we are working on multiplexed devices for achieving emission across the energy spectrum.
