Madalina Furis

I received my PhD in February 2004 from the University at Buffalo, State University of New York, Physics Department and spent the following years as a Postdoctoral Associate at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) in Los Alamos, New Mexico. My PhD thesis was focused on ultrafast spectroscopy of wide bandgap semiconductors. I joined the physics department at UVM, as an Assistant Professor, in august 2006. I am also affiliated with the Material Science Program at UVM.

  • Research

Over the past few years, my research was geared towards exploring the optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures, such as CdSe colloidal quantum dots, in the presence of very high magnetic fields. My current research is focused on magneto-optical spectroscopy studies of spin polarized electron dynamics in semiconductors and optical Kerr effect measurements of ferromagnetic nanostructures. A complete list of my peer-reviewed publications, conference proceedings and conference participation can be found here.
