Research Interests

High speed semiconductor devices (photodetectors and transistors); optoelectronics; nanoelectronics; plasma electronics; and nanophotonics


Dr. Bahram Nabet joined the faculty of Drexel University in 1989 where he is presently Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and affiliated Professor of Materials Science and Engineering.

Dr. Nabet's research work has led to the development of optoelectronic devices that circumvent limitations of charge transport, i.e., work faster than the travel speed of electrons. His interest in interaction of light and semiconductors in small dimensions has led to the development of nano-structures that absorb and emit light with orders of magnitude more efficiency compared to their bulk counterparts. He is co-author of two books and over 160 refereed publications, and has won 6 Best Professor teaching awards from students as well as a departmental and a university-wide teaching award.

He has been a senior visiting scientist in Brazil and Italy, ASEE Summer Faculty Fellow, and has been on sabbatical leave at Telcordia Applied Research Inc. and Dexxon Group Inc. Dr. Nabet is a member of IEEE, AAAS, AAHE, and HKN.
