Ph.D (University of California, Berkeley, 1983)
Research interest: Solid State Physics. Nanotechnology; carbon nanotubes; quantum dots; spintronics; scanning tunneling microscopy.
Dr. Jose Perez conducts experimental research in condensed matter physics, specifically the formation and growth of polycrystalline diamond on silicon. He uses highly advanced research tools such as scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and Raman spectroscopy to characterize the surfaces and structure of this potentially very important material.
