Dr. Huong Nguyen
Assistant Professor of Physics
M.S. and B.S. (Physics), Kishinev State University, Moldova
Lower Doctorate (Physics), Institute of Physics, Vietnam
Ph.D. (Physics), City University of New York
Dr. Nguyen is a theoretical physicist whose research interests
include quantum dots, low dimensional systems, and the
structures and physical properties of solids in solid state. She is
also an active researcher of nanophysics and condensed matter theory.
As part of her research, Dr. Nguyen has developed a theory of luminescence
for the Mn-doped semiconductor quantum dot that contains an extra
electron inside the dot; investigated numerous aspects of quantum
nanocrystals; and studied properties of phonoritons in highly excited semiconductors.
Dr. Nguyen's teaching expertise includes Solid State Physics, Electromagnetism,
Thermodynamics, and Statistical Physics. In addition, she has taught undergraduate
General Physics, General Physics Laboratory, Electricity and Magnetism, undergraduate
and graduate level Quantum Mechanics, and also instructs graduate students in advanced
studies of Solid State Physics.
After earning her Lower Doctorate, Dr.
Nguyen was a researcher at the Institute of Applied Physics in
Moldova and the Institute of Physics in Vietnam, conducting numerous
investigations on electronic structure and optical properties of
excitons, Hubbard models, the theory of excitons in quantum wells and
supperlattices, and properties of phonoritons. Dr. Nguyen then
completed her doctoral study at City University of New York, where
she also served as a research associate, studying quantum dots and nanocrystals,
and developing a computer simulation to obtain the
band structures and different characteristics of GaN/AlGaN MQW
Structures. Dr. Nguyen joined the Department of
Physics at Marshall in 2005.
