We develop innovative optoelectronic devices (e.g., 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 to be incorporate into optical waveguide, modulators, switches, etc.
SEDD has extensive facilities for material growth, fabrication, and optical and electrical characterization.
