Professional Summary

M. Cahay has twenty five years experience in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology and vacuum micro- and nano-electronics. He has published over 125 refereed journal papers and 55 refereed conference proceedings papers. He is an active member of the Electrochemical Society (ECS) for which he has co-edited of 11 proceedings volumes of symposia on quantum confinement and cold cathodes. He has been on the board of the IEEE Technical Committee on Spintronics and Nanomagnetism since 2002, has served on the program committees of 30 international conferences. He has written a book on an Introduction to Spintronics with Prof. Bandyopadhyay from Virginia Commonwealth University. His current area of research deals with generation of spin polarized currents by purely electrical means using asymmetrically bias quantum point contacts with in-plane side gates, experimental and theoretical investigations of field emission from carbon nanotube fibers and second electron emission from various anode materials.
