Photonics and Nano Devices

Overview

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.
