Lisesivdin Research Group (LRG) on Low-dimensional Materials and Devices is a research group within the sub-department of Condensed Matter Physics, which is part of the Department of Physics at Gazi University.

Our research is primarily focused on developing the physics and technology behind high-tech semiconductor devices which are mostly transistors. As material groups, we are interested in GaN-based materials, ZnO-based materials, graphene and black phosphorus. 

We are capable to conduct both experimental and calculations studies. More information about our facilities can be found here.


Dr. Lisesivdin Received Prestigious TUBA / GEBIP Award

Nov 1 2016, by S. B. Lisesivdin
Dr. Sefer Bora Lisesivdin, has been awarded with the Turkish Academy of Sciences, Distinguished Young Scientist Award for 2016 in the field of Physics. In the framework of this GEBIP programme of the TUBA, his research activities will be supported for a period of 3 years. The objective of TÜBA-GEBIP is to foster young, outstanding scientists who are at the stage of establishing their own research programmes in Turkey after finishing their post-doctoral research activities. TÜBA supports these scientists for a period of three years and helps them set up their own research groups at a stage when they are in need for incentives.

Version 1.0 and the elementary version of Aestimo solver are released!

2014-08-29 22:21, by Dr. S. B. Lisesivdin

Aestimo Team is proud to release the version 1.0 of Aestimo 1D Self-consistent Schrödinger-Poisson Solver. This version includes many bugfixes, new organization of the structure, wurtzite material using, lots of change in intersubband optical transitions module. Dielectric constants are now handled more accurately. Many tutorials are added in the form of an ipython notebooks. Code is heavily modified and stabilized with more than 60 commits. This version is the most feature rich and stable version so ever. For more please visit release notes. Also another aestimo version, which is called “elementary” is released. This version is easy to understand in terms of coding, and therefore it can be used in undergraduate/graduate courses and forking new solvers. There will be no any other release for the “elementary” version. We are always open to your contributions. Please use it, issue a bug, help to write use a better user’s manual or commit to source!
