Photonics, Electronics and Quantum Systems

Research in photonics, electronics and quantum systems focuses on the applications of material science to electronic system design.  These systems consider the effects at the nanoscale of physics, electromagnetism, and light.  Innovative designs improve sensing, circuit design and efficiency, signal transmission and amplification, and quantum computation.  Students in this area are well prepared for jobs in semiconductors, solid state electronics, nanotechnology, medical imaging, and material engineering.
