UW EE hosted its first annual Research Review Day. Industry partners joined University of Washington faculty and students to discuss top research in the field of electrical engineering.
Photonics and Nano Devices Research at UW EE 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. UW EE is the host for the Washington Nanofabrication Facility and a member of the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI), supporting academic institutions and companies throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond in designing and fabricating nanoscale materials and structures.
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
The new professorship was established through a generous gift from UW EE alum Milton Zeutschel (BSEE '60) and his wife Delia Zeutschel (BA '58) to recruit and retain entrepreneurially-driven faculty.
UW engineers develop 3-D printing plastic objects and sensors that can collect useful data and communicate with other WiFi-connected devices entirely on their own.
The Institute for Nano-Engineered Systems (NanoEs) will pursue impactful advancements in a variety of disciplines — including energy, materials science, computation and medicine. It is housed in a new, multimillion-dollar facility on the UW’s Seattle campus and led by UW EE Professor Karl Böhringer.
UW EE Professor Joshua Smith speaks with NBC News on how the Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the way we communicate with the world around us.
A collaboration between researchers at the University of Washington Department of Electrical Engineering and the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory yielded a new world efficiency record for quantum dot solar cells at 13.4 percent.
