Biographical Sketch of
Bahram Nabet, Ph.D.
(215) 895-6761
bahram.nabet@drexel.edu

   Bahram Nabet received an International Scholarship from Purdue University, W. Lafayette, IN in 1974 and was graduated with BSEE Honor’s degree in 1977.  He resumed his studies in 1984 at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, where he received his MSEE in 1985 and the Ph.D. in 1989. After a period of Post Doctoral studies at UW, in September 1989 he joined the faculty of the Electrical and Computer Eng. Dept. at Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA where he is presently a Professor, with an affiliate appointment in Material Science and Eng.

   His main research interest is in optoelectronic devices and systems. He approached this field by finding parallels between the interaction of light and matter in biological systems and in synthetic materials.  His original work in integration of photo detectors and neural networks circuitry based on models of insect vision  resulted in the implementation of the first such system in GaAs and led to two books published by the CRC Press.  His more recent research interests are in determination of the optical properties of reduced dimensional systems and their use in high-speed low-noise optoelectronic devices. He is co-author of 2 books and over 170 book chapters and  refereed journal and conference publications, and holds 4 patents.  He established the ECE department’s Microfabrication  Facility. Devices that have been fabricated included photonic sensors that take advantage of reduced dimensionality quantum regimes. His work has been supported by NSF, AFOSR, ARL, DARPA, SRC and private industry. His research awards include NSF Research Initiation Award, Engineering Foundation Research Award, and Drexel University’s Research Scholar Award, Research Impact Awards, as well as a Next Generation Internet DARPA grant.

   His scholarship of teaching includes the introduction of several graduate courses in the area of electronic and photonic devices and transport in nano-devices. He launched a pilot course in "Concurrent Education" in which graduate, undergraduate, and community college levels cooperated in teams that performed state-of-the-art device fabrication. He received "Best Professor" award of the Senior Class for 5 years; ECE Department’s Tom Moore teaching award in 2001, and Drexel University Senior Faculty Teaching award in 2001. Dr. Nabet has served the faculty as Vice-Chair of the Faculty Senate, Chair of the Senate Committee on Faculty Affairs,  and member of numerous committees including the Steering Committee on Middle State Accreditation in 2012. He was Associate Dean for special projects in the College of Engineering in which capacity he implemented a ‘Global Engineering Minor’  for undergraduates, a trilateral ‘Partnership in Global Engineering’ program for graduate students with Shanghai Jiaton University and Air Products Inc., and a dual PhD Program with Politecnico di Milano.

   Dr. Nabet spent his 2008-2009 sabbatical year working on a global project as Chief Technology Advisor to Dexxon Group, to provide technological tools needed for access to information, specifically for delivery of K-12 education to everyone, regardless of their socioeconomic status. He is founder and president of a philanthropic organization, Gdium Foundation,  that follows the above goals. He is the founder of NanoGrass Solar LLC, a Pennsylvania company that is developing photovoltaic devices using nanowires and plasmonics; his prior work on detection of THz radiation and in electron beam induced current microscopy have been licensed to private industry.

Courses:


1- Compound Semiconductor Devices.
A one-term graduate level course that covered the physics of compound  semiconductor devices. It was the first such offering at Drexel and was later developed into a full-fledged sequence of three courses in semiconductor devices.

2- Devices I, Presently ECE-E 520 Solid State Electronics
First graduate course  in semiconductor devices. This course starts with atomic energy  levels and develops the solid state physics background necessary for the understanding of semiconductor devices. It proceeds to cover pn homojunctions, metal semiconductor contacts and heterojunctions in great detail.

3- Devices II, Presently ECE-E 521 Bipolar and Unipolar Transistors
Second graduate course  in semiconductor devices. This course builds upon the basics learned in the first quarter to cover all modern transistors including Bipolar Junction Transistors, Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors, Metal Oxide Field-Effect Transistors, Metal Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistors, Modulation Doped Field-Effect Transistors.

4- Devices III, Reduced Dimensionality Devices
In this advanced device course physics of two-dimensional devices is studied. This includes, Quantum Wells, Multiple Quantum Wells, Superlattices, Tunneling, Resonance Tunneling, Parallel Transport, and Perpendicular Transport.

5- Devices III, Presently ECE-E522 Photonic Devices
On alternate years this course is taught instead of Reduced Dimensionality Devices course. This course covers physics of light absorption, interaction of photons and electrons, photoconductors, pn and pin photodiodes, heterojunction photodiodes, metal-semiconductor photodetectors, metal-semiconductor-metal photodetectors, Light Emitting Diodes and lasers.

6- Optical and Electronic Device Fabrication
This  courses was offered during Winter quarter 1996. It was an innovative course that pioneered the concept of Concurrent Education. In this teaching paradigm, students with background varying  from associate degree to undergraduate and graduate level cooperate in teams that fabricate semicondcutor devices. They not only learn  device fabrication and physics concepts, but also gain experience in real-life industrial teams which require cooperation of  members with non-uniform backgrounds and responsibilites. Several papers have descibe this new concept and three grant proposals have originated from this work.

7- Advanced Telecom Engineering, TLCOM 611
This course is developed with the help of Dr. A. Paolella of Lockheed- Martin, it offers a top-down approach to the study of sub-circuits and devices that are the basic building blocks of communication systems in three main categories: a) microwave, b) millimeter wave,  and c) lightwave. It is a core course in the Telecom Master's Degree Program and was offered for the first time in Fall 98.

8- Quantum and Nanoelectronics, Presently ECE-E821 Nanoelectronics
Offered as a special topic in Winter 02/03 this course covers the : preliminary concepts of reduced dimensionality, characteristic lengths, magneto-electric subbands; conductance from transmission: resistance in a ballistic conductor, Landauer formulation, Landauer-Buttiker formalism;  transmission function, S-matrix and Green’s function; quantum Hall effect, electron scattering in quantum structures, parallel transport in quantum structures, perpendicular transport in quantum structures.

9- ECE-E820 Fundamentals of Carrier Transport
The course objective is to introduce the fundamentals of carrier transport in semiconductors, beyond the common drift-diffusion descriptions  that were sufficient for  large size devices. We start from an overview of quantum foundation of transport, and consider various scattering mechanisms in semiconductors, before introducing distribution functions and  Boltzmann transport equations. Monte  Carlo simulations will be used as a means of describing the behavior of a large number of carriers.
