Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Electron
  • Optics

His primary areas of study are Quantum dot, Optoelectronics, Condensed matter physics, Photoluminescence and Exciton. His research integrates issues of Spontaneous emission, Photon, Quantum, Cavity quantum electrodynamics and Atomic physics in his study of Quantum dot. Alfred Forchel interconnects Laser and Optics in the investigation of issues within Optoelectronics.

His Condensed matter physics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oscillator strength and Magnetic field, Zeeman effect. As a part of the same scientific family, Alfred Forchel mostly works in the field of Photoluminescence, focusing on Quantum well and, on occasion, Blueshift and Ground state. In the subject of general Exciton, his work in Biexciton is often linked to Inorganic compound, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Strong coupling in a single quantum dot–semiconductor microcavity system (1480 citations)
  • Fine structure of neutral and charged excitons in self-assembled In(Ga)As/(Al)GaAs quantum dots (708 citations)
  • Coupling and Entangling of Quantum States in Quantum Dot Molecules (623 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Optoelectronics, Quantum dot, Condensed matter physics, Optics and Laser. His research investigates the link between Optoelectronics and topics such as Quantum well that cross with problems in Band gap and Semiconductor. The concepts of his Quantum dot study are interwoven with issues in Photonics, Spontaneous emission, Quantum point contact, Photon and Cavity quantum electrodynamics.

Alfred Forchel is interested in Exciton, which is a branch of Condensed matter physics. His work deals with themes such as Polariton and Binding energy, Atomic physics, which intersect with Exciton. His studies deal with areas such as Molecular beam epitaxy and Diode as well as Laser.
