Peter John Burke (M’97) received the Ph.D. degree in physics from Yale University, New Haven, CT, in1998. From 1998 to 2001, he was a Sherman Fairchild Postdoctoral Scholar in Physics at California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, where he studied resonant tunnel diodes for THz detectors and sources, 2-D plasmons, and the interaction between Johnson noise and quantum coherence in 2-D systems. Since 2001, he has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Irvine, where he is currently leading the initiative in nanotechnology. In 2005, he become Associate Professor at the same University. He is also Adjunct Professor at the Department of Printed Electronics (World Class University Program) of the Sunchon National University, Korea. His research interests include nanoelectronics, nanomechanics, and nanobiotechnology, as well as quantum computation and quantum information processing.
