Areas of Interest
Prof. Hoffman’s mid-infrared and THz optoelectronics research is focused on understanding quantum phenomena for the development of new optical materials, sources, and detectors. Much of his work focuses on quantum engineering, where hundreds of layers of extremely thin semiconductors are designed to form a material with customized optical, electrical, and quantum properties. These designer materials are fabricated into devices that are characterized in his laboratory.
