Rogers, Charles Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Prof. Rogers does condensed matter physics experiments dealing with thin film materials, small electronic and optical devices fabricated with optical and electron-beam lithography, reduced dimensional systems, and the physics of fluctuations and noise in very small systems. Present areas of concentration include the study of gallium nitride nanowires, gallium nitride nanowire electromechanical resonator devices, and the properties of surface-localized and bulk 3-dimensional dipolar rotor systems. The work has strong overlap with materials physics and materials science and engineering. His group often collaborates with colleagues at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He has a history of working with industrial collaborators.
