Simon Huang received his B.S. degree in MSE from UC Berkeley. His thesis research involved the growth and characterization of semiconductor quantum dots for intermediate band solar cells. Specifically, he has studied the influence of wetting layers and quantum dot size distribution on intermediate band formation in InAs/GaAs superlattices. In addition, he has investigated the influence of substrate temperature, indium exposure, and buffer surface reconstruction on droplet epitaxy of InAs/GaAs quantum dots.  Simon received his PhD in 2015 for his thesis entitled, "Formation, Structure, and Properties of InAs/GaAs Quantum Dots".  He is currently employed at Applied Materials.
