Faculty Profile

Huey-Lin Luo

Faculty-Emeritus, Electrical and Computer Engineering

Solid-state physics, materials science, superconductivity, thin film phenomena; physical metallurgy; thin film materials for superconducting tunneling and Josephson junctions; and interface studies.

Professor Luo specializes in high-temperature superconducting materials and their applications. He has been successful in depositing thin films of complex superconductors. Luo is the curriculum advisor for the department's graduate program in electronic devices and materials. The field encompasses the fabrication, characterization and modeling of prototype electronic materials, devices and integrated circuits based on silicon and III-V compound semiconductors, as well as processing methods employed in present-day and projected integrated circuits. Current research includes growth by molecular beam epitaxy and chemical vapor phase epitaxy; metallurgical aspects of interfaces; the electronic, optical, and electro-optic properties of heterostructures; and the study of superconductors and magnetic materials. In his advisor capacity, Luo oversees research on ultrasmall structures (nanotechnology) as well as ultrahigh speed transistors and optoelectronic devices.

Capsule Bio:

Huey-Lin Luo has held research and teaching positions at UCSD since 1965. That is the same year he received his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology.
