Microelectronics and Photonics

Microelectronics research investigates semiconductor materials and device physics for developing electronic and photonic devices and integrated circuits with excellent performance in terms of speed, power consumption, and functionality. Photonics research studies laser devices, optical systems, and the effects of quantum mechanics on the behavior of electron and photon interaction. Current projects include research on high-speed transistor lasers, terahertz transistors and circuits, excimer laser processes for displays, III-V-based MOSFETs, nano-sphere drug delivery and cell encapsulation, and nanolasers.
