UW ECE Professor Denise Wilson is co-author of “Sex, Gender, and Engineering: Harassment at Work and in School.” Wilson will teach a course to go along with the book next spring.
Photonics and Nano Devices 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.
Nanoscale Materials and Structure
Modeling and fabrication of novel nanoscale materials and nanoscale structures and the design and fabrication of novel devices.
Integrated Photonics and Optoelectronics
Design and fabrication of integrated photonic, optoelectronic, and quantum devices for applications in computation, communication, sensing, and quantum information.
Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS)
micro-machining, lithography, x-ray and diamond patterning
Sensors and Sensor Systems
UW ECE Associate Professor Arka Majumdar (left) and UW ECE fourth-year doctoral student Zhuoran (Roger) Fang (right) are leading a multi-institutional research team that has developed energy-efficient switches for the next generation of data centers.
First-year doctoral student Liban Hussein, who works in the lab of UW ECE Assistant Professor Sajjad Moazeni, was recently awarded an opportunity to take part in the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP).
UW ECE Assistant Professor Sajjad Moazeni was recently named recipient of a NSF CAREER award, one of the most prestigious awards in the nation for early-career faculty.
We congratulate and offer our deepest gratitude to UW ECE Professors Howard Chizeck, Bruce Darling, Yasuo Kuga and Ming-Ting Sun, recent retirees who have left an impactful legacy of service.
A team led by UW ECE Professor Mo Li has developed a way of using sound waves to move subatomic quasiparticles known as ‘excitons’ further than ever before — leading to a faster, more energy-efficient computing circuit.
