Revolutionizing solutions for medical, energy and other fields based on nano, molecular and macromolecular optoelectronic materials and devices


Bio-photonics, nano-photonics and bio-nanophotonics are contemporary fields that draw upon the expertise of research from physics, materials science, chemistry, electrical engineering, biology and medicine to form the basis for a whole range of novel technologies. Highly trained Bio/Nano-Photonics researchers examine how light can be used to develop new materials and devices with significant applications in medicine, telecommunications, energy and other fields, from using nano-prisms and metal atoms in cancer research to designing new sustainable lighting sources for homes and businesses. Central to the implementation of these studies is a new, state-of-the-art clean room facility that can synthesize new materials and fabricate devices, ranging from nano and micro to macro scales. Industry partners such as Texas Instruments, L3 Communications, Raytheon, DRS and the Center for Commercialization of Fluorescence Technology increase the total available brainpower, utility of facilities and analytical tools.
