Bilkent University

Devices and Sensors Lab

Bilkent logoThe Devices and Sensors Research Group mainly focuses on efficient energy utilization and sustainable energy generation by developing new nanophotonic and optoelectronic systems. Among the Demir Group research projects are high-quality high-efficiency semiconductor LED lighting, FRET-based light generation and harvesting, energy transfer phenomena, and nanocrystal optoelectronics, metal nanoparticle and nanowire optoelectronics. Bilkent prides on well-established research infrastructure along with UNAM facilities and ranks among the top in terms of research outputs in science/engineering in Turkey.

The Devices and Sensors Research Group is also very active in synergic entrepreneurship activities in Turkey, Europe, the US and Asia, based on high-technology prototypes the Group have developed and in taking new ideas from the lab to the market. Professor Demir is director of LUMINOUS! Centre of Excellence for Semiconductor Lighting and Displays in Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore. Also, Professor Demir is a co-founder and a partner of several successful startup companies. Based on their joint research work and intellectual property, he first co-founded a nanotechnology based company, called InnovNano, which was then successfully turned into a joint venture, called InnovCoat.

Key Personnel

PROF. HILMI VOLKAN DEMIR (Principal Investigator, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ): Hilmi Volkan Demir received his B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Bilkent University (one of the top ranking engineering schools in Turkey) in 1998, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University, CA, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. He has been working as a faculty member at Bilkent University (his alma mater), where he presently holds joint appointments as an Associate Professor at Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department, Physics Department, and Materials Science and Nanotechnology Graduate Program. He is also a member of UNAM - National Nanotechnology Research Center, UMRAM - National Magnetic Resonance Imaging Research Center and the Advanced Research Laboratory. Also he is the director of Luminous! Center of Excellence for Semiconductor Lighting and Displays in Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore.

His current scientific research interests and projects include the development and demonstration of high-quality LED solid state lighting using nanophosphors, high spectral efficiency photovoltaics using semiconductor quantum dot nanocrystals, nonradiative energy transfer driven devices, plasmonic devices, biomimetic optoelectronic devices, and bioimplant metamaterial sensors.
