This is us.

Nanotechnology Research Center is an Engineering organization unlike any other. The line between research and product development is wonderfully blurred. The engineer is often engaged in research and the researcher in real-world systems. The people who works at NANOTAM, from graduate students to managers, actively share their works through publication in high impact scientific journals and through other venues such as industry forums and conferencese.

Ekmel Ozbay

Prof. Dr. Ekmel Ozbay received B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, TURKEY in 1987. He received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University, CA, in 1989 and 1992. From 1992 to 1993, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate in Stanford University. From 1992 to 1995, he worked as a scientist in Iowa State University. He joined Bilkent University (Ankara, TURKEY) in 1995, where he is currently a full professor in Physics Department and Electrical-Electronics Engineering Department. He has published 400+ articles in SCI journals. His papers have received 12500+ SCI citations with an SCI h-index of 53. He has given 155+ invited talks in international conferences. In 2003, he founded Bilkent University Nanotechnology Research Center (NANOTAM) where he leads a research group working on nanophotonics, nanometamaterials, nanoelectronics, nanoplasmonics, nanodevices, photonic crystals, GaN/AlGaN MOCVD growth, fabrication and characterization of GaN based devices, and high speed optoelectronics. He is the 1997 recipient of the Adolph Lomb Medal of Optical Society of America and 2005 European Union Descartes Science award. He worked as an editor for Nature Scientific Reports, Optics Letters, Photonics and Nanostructures Fundamental Applications, and IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics journals.   0 (312) 290 1966
