Electronic, Photonic, and Integrated Quantum Systems (EPIQS)
Electronic, Photonic, and Integrated Quantum Systems (EPIQS) research at UW ECE includes quantum electronics, nanoscale optics, novel photon sources, and optical metamaterials, with applications in quantum science, imaging, biomedical sensing, and other areas. Our faculty work closely with colleagues in the Department of Physics and several faculty hold joint and secondary appointments in Physics. Many UW ECE faculty are members of the Institute for Nano-Engineered Systems (NanoES), a NSF National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) node that hosts the Washington Nanofabrication Facility (WNF) to support academic institutions and companies throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond in designing and fabricating nanoscale materials, structures, devices and systems.

Recent UW ECE graduate Zerina Kapetanovic (Ph.D. ‘22) has received high honors for her work while at UW ECE. She will join Stanford University in September 2023 as an assistant professor of electrical engineering.
Alana Dee (left) and Marziyeh Rezaei (right) are second-year doctoral students at UW ECE and each is a recipient of a 2022 Cadence Diversity in Technology Scholarship. Both students are advised by UW ECE Assistant Professor Sajjad Moazeni.
A UW ECE student team, led by UW ECE Professor Denise Wilson and Dr. Gregory Valentine from the UW School of Medicine, has engineered a low-cost, highly accurate intravenous (IV) fluid monitor aimed at improving infant health outcomes around the globe.
Kai-Mei Fu, who is the Virginia and Prentice Bloedel Professor of Physics and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Washington, was recently interviewed by UW News about the up-and-coming field of quantum research.
Two UW ECE-led research teams have been named recipients of CoMotion Gap Fund awards, which provide funds to help ease the transition between academic research grants and attracting seed-stage private investment.
