Here is a brief description of one of my most enjoyable projects. A number of years ago, I was a member of a team that developed a mathematical formulation and computational techniques for improving the most dominant crystal growth process in the microelectronics industry, namely the Czochralski manufacturing process. Funded by AFOSR, this team developed an innovative, more-efficient, and less costly process for growing high-quality Indium Phosphide semiconductor crystals. These crystals form the basis for fabricating wafers used in creating optoelectronics and radio frequency electronics.
