Computational Modeling: Experience from my Bell Lab Days

By Muhammad A. Alam

Purdue University

Published on


This presentation was one of 13 presentations in the one-day forum, “Excellence in Computer Simulation,” which brought together a broad set of experts to reflect on the future of computational science and engineering.


Alam Professor Alam joined Purdue University as a faculty member of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in 2004 after spending nearly a decade in industry, first at Bell Labs and then at Agere Systems. His research interest involves physics of carrier transport in semiconductor devices, and he has worked on theory of electron transport models, quasi-ballistic transport in bipolar transistors, MOCVD and ALD crystal growth, laser dynamics, and most recent recently, on the theory of oxide reliability, transport in nanocomposite materials, and response of Nano-Bio sensors.
