Manijeh Razeghi received the Doctorat d'√Čtat es Sciences Physiques from the Universit√© de Paris, France, in 1980. After receiving her doctoral degree, she joined Thomson-CSF (Orsay, France) as a Senior Research Scientist and then the Head of the Exploratory Materials Laboratory at from 1980 to 1991. While at Thomson, Dr. Razeghi developed and implemented modern metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) epitaxial growth for entire compositional ranges of III-V compound semiconductors and heterostructures. She realized the first InP Quantum wells and Superlattices and demonstrated the marvels of quantum mechanics in the low dimensional world. Her pioneering work on InP based compound semiconductors culminated in her 1989 publication of The MOCVD Challenge Volume 1: A Survey of GaInAsP-InP for Photonic and Electronic Applications. She joined Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, as a Walter P. Murphy Professor and Director of the Center for Quantum Devices in Fall 1991, where she created the undergraduate and graduate program in solid-state engineering and the Center for Quantum devices. She is one of the leading scientists in the field of semiconductor science and technology, pioneering in the development and implementation of major modern epitaxial techniques. Her current research interest is in nanoscale optoelectronic quantum devices. She has authored or coauthored more than 1000 papers, 15 books, and more than 30 book chapters. She holds 30 U.S. patents and has given more than 1000 invited and plenary talks. She received the IBM Europe Science and Technology Prize in 1987, the Achievement Award from the SWE in 1995, the R.F. Bunshah Award in 2004 and many best paper awards. Dr. Razeghi is an elected Fellow of SWE (1995), SPIE (2000), IEC (2003), OSA (2004), APS (2004) IOP (2005), IEEE (2005) and MRS (2008).
