Electromagnetic Scattering & Quantum Structures

Research Interest

Dr. Baird's research interests are in the areas of electromagnetic scattering and quantum structures. Currently, he is involved in predicting and understanding the radar scattering signatures of complex military targets using Computation Electromagnetics Codes (CEM). He also is involved in building and using computational models to predict the performance of Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) and to aid in the design of next-generation QCLs.
