NanoCenter Associate Director and Physics professor Michael Fuhrer has been promoted to full professor by UMD president C.D. Mote. Prof. Fuhrer joined the faculty at the University of Maryland as an Assistant Professor in 2000, promoted to Associate Professor in 2005, and became NanoCenter Associate Director in 2007.

Fuhrer?s research involves the physics of electronic devices constructed of nanoscale components, for example individual carbon nanotubes, novel two-dimensional electronic nanostructures, or individual organometallic molecules. Prof. Fuhrer studied the first carbon nanotube heterojunctions, demonstrated the first carbon-nanotube-based single-electron memory device, and showed that the room-temperature mobility in semiconducting carbon nanotubes is the highest of any semiconductor. Recently, Fuhrer has measured the electronic properties of graphene, a single atom thick sheet of graphite. Fuhrer made the first measurement of charge carrier scattering in graphene from charged impurities, lattice defects, and lattice vibrations. He has published over 55 papers in technical journals, and presented his research in more than 70 invited talks.
