Photonics and Nano Devices

Overview

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.
