“The technological and societal impact of the upcoming quantum revolution is going to be enormous."
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 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.

The Washington Research Foundation has recognized Arka Majumdar's work in nanophotonic technologies.
Lenses are as thin as 190 nanometers — less than 1/100,000ths of an inch thick
Assistant Professor Arka Majumdar has received a fellowship from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for his research at the forefront of combining quantum materials and nanophotonics.
UW EE research breakthrough could lead to an ultrathin lens for cameras or microscopes — without glass.
