Nasir's research investigated the design and clean-environment fabrication of solid-state and optoelectronic devices, including field-effect transistors and light-emitting diodes. His research expertise spans the areas of flexible electronics; optoelectronic device growth, fabrication and characterization; and free-space optical communication. His published and in-progress work covers various aspects of semiconductor device physics, design, material growth, thin film deposition, device fabrication and operation of group III-nitride-based ultraviolet and visible range light-emitting diodes, lasers, and photodetectors. Currently, he is using pulsed laser deposition to deposit group III-oxide materials and novel heterostructures that will aid in the realization of high-efficiency deep-ultraviolet photodetectors.
