Trainee files patent

Joshua Shapiro, an IGERT trainee under Professor Diana Huffaker, filed a provisional patent on a technique for forming axial heterostructures in catalyst-free nanopillars formed by selective area epitaxy. This technique may be used for development of optoelectronics with improved performance and sensitivity including detectors, lasers, and photovoltaics.
