After obtaining his PhD at the University of Utrecht, Erik Bakkers started working at Philips Research in Eindhoven in 2000. In 2010, Erik joined the Technical University of Eindhoven as well as Delft Technical University. His group has three main focus areas all based on semiconducting nanowires. The first area is on developing new quantum materials which should enable to find topological states. The second area is on light emission from silicon. By changing the crystalline properties of silicon, it can be made to emit light. The third area is the application of nanowires in solar cells.
