We develop innovative optoelectronic devices (e.g., micro-resonators, modulators, splitters, switches, amplifiers, and lasers) and radio frequency-photonic devices (e.g., infrared receivers, optical/microwave converters, photodetectors, and photo-receivers). These devices have applications into photonically controlled microwave systems, fiber-optic gyroscopes, collision avoidance systems, and biosensors.

This research and engineering development involves basic device and material physics studies, as well as prototype device design, modeling, fabrication, and characterization. The development program offers great potential for device and material characterization techniques, their maturation, and advancement. Current research includes aspects of design and characterization of novel metamaterials and metastructures  such as epsillon and mu near zero metamaterials and slow-light metastructures to be incorporate into optical resonators, waveguide, modulators, switches, etc. The gaol is to develop the next genetartion integrated photonics circuit with these noval optoelectronic devices to enable future chip-scale Photonic and RF-Photonic system with ultra-low size, weight, powder consumption and cost.

SEDD has extensive facilities for material growth, cleanroom fabrication, and optical and electrical characterization.
