Rajib Rahman's Biography

Rajib Rahman is a Research Assistant Professor in the iNEMO group at Purdue. Prior to joining Purdue, Rajib spent three years in Sandia National Laboratories, New Mexico, as a postdoctoral fellow in the Advanced Device Technologies group. Rajib obtained a PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Purdue University in 2009 under the supervision of Prof. Gerhard Klimeck and Prof. Lloyd Hollenberg. Rajib also holds a Masters in EE from Purdue, and a Bachelors degree from Gettysburg College (PA, USA) in Physics and Computer Science. Rajib’s research focuses on quantum mechanical simulations of solid-state quantum bits based on quantum dots and defects. Rajib is also involved in the modeling of III-V quantum dots for photo-detectors, 2D materials based field-effect transistors, and Nitride devices. Rajib has contributed to the development of the NEMO-3D tool.

His research topics include:

  • Solid-state quantum computation: Quantum dots and defects.
  • Electronic structure and transport in Quantum dots (III-V, Si, SiGe).
  • Coherence, relaxation, and excitation mechanisms in silicon: electron-phonon, electron-photon, spin-spin, electron-electron interactions.
  • Many particle electronic structure from Configuration Interaction: Exchange and correlation effects.
  • 2D material based field effect devices (Bilayer Graphene and Transition metal dichalcogenides).
  • Atomistic modeling of Nitride based devices.
