Dr. Timothy Boykin Professor, ECE Contact 301 Sparkman DriveEngineering BuildingRoom 263EHuntsville, AL 35899 Campus Map email@example.com Biography Timothy Boykin's research centers on the physics of quantum wells, superlattices, nanowires, nanoribbons, and other quantum-confined heterostructures. Most of his work has involved full-bandstructure modeling these structures with empirical tight-binding techniques. Highlights of his research include the first numerically-stable, realistic bandstructure empirical tight-binding calculation for a resonant-tunneling diode including space-charge regions; The generalized eigenproblem method for obtaining surface and interface states; Analytic effective mass expressions for and investigations of the capabilities of many commonly employed tight-binding models; Electromagnetic interactions in tight-binding; Tight-binding strain models; Valley-splitting in Si quantum wells for quantum computing devices; Brillouin zone unfolding and approximate bandstructures of semiconductor alloys and alloy nanodevices; Multi-band tight-binding models for graphene; Semiconductor surface states; and Brillouin zone unfolding to find approximate bandstructures for crystals with vacancies. He was elected Fellow of APS in 2011 and elevated to Fellow of IEEE in 2018 in recognition of this work.
