Jesús Enrique Velázquez-Pérez

University of Salamanca

Jesus Enrique Velazquez-Perez pursued his PhD studies (1987-1990) at both the University of Salamanca (USAL), Spain, and the Institut d’Electronique Fondamentale (IEF) Université Paris-XI, Orsay, France in the field of simulation of high-speed devices simulation coding microscopic models based on the Monte Carlo, MC, technique. from 1987 to 1990. In 1990, he joined the Departmento of Física Aplicada of the Universidad de Salamanca (USAL), where he is currently Professor Titular of Electronics. From his start at the USAL, he focused his research on noise modelling of semiconductor devices using MC codes. The in-house MC simulation software was extended in the mid of the 90s to allow the study of DC, AC and noise performances of advanced heterojunction transistors based on the Si/SiGe material system. From 1998 to 2004 he was also an invited researcher in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of the Imperial College London, UK, working in the development of n-channel Si/SiGe MODFETs for low-power RF and millimeter-wave applications. This work was subsequently extended to the development of Si/SiGe MODFET plasma wave based THz detectors. In 2010 he set up with Dr. Yahya Meziani the THz and Solar Cells Labs of the USAL (named as USAL NanoLab) to conduct experimental research in semiconductor devices for THz applications and investigation of third generation solar cells. He is one of the founding members of the Clean Room of Nanotechnology of the University of Salamanca (USAL CRN) that produces cutting edge graphene-based FETs for future THz applications. He is author and co-author of more than 90 scientific publications, 3 book chapters, and participated in more than 100 international conferences. He supervised over 25 final year projects and PhD Thesis in Physics at the USAL.
