Research Facilities


Research Laboratories

Photonics and Microelectronics Lab - Dr. Asif Khan

Coming Soon

Nanobiomagnetics and Bioelectronics Lab - Dr. Seongtae Bae

Our laboratory is currently focused on the following research areas: the development of magnetic nanoparticles/nanofluids and advanced electronics/magnetics bioinstrumentation technology for biomedical applications; and development of nanostructure spintronics materials and devices for advance electronics

Microwave and Power Microelectronics - Dr. Grigory Simin

Our research is related to design of semiconductor devices and integrated circuits for microwave and power applications.Our main focus is on physics, design, characterization and applications of transistors, diodes, varactors and other devices utilizing wide bandgap materials, such as III-Nitride materials.

Photovoltaics and Nuclear Radiation Accounting Devices (PANRAD) - Dr. Krishna Mandal

Our group conducts research in two major areas: wide-bangap semiconductor based solid-state nuclear radiation detectors (alpha, beta, x-rays, gamma rays andneutrons) and front-end read-outelectronics for applications in Homeland Security, nuclear safeguard, space astronomy and medical imaging; the second area of focus is large-area, high efficiency, light-weight third generation photovoltaic solar cells using earth-abundant, non-toxic materials for economically sustainable energy solutions.  The laboratories are primarily focused on crystal (bulk and thin films) growth, device fabrication, performance characterization and defect analysis.

Silicon-Carbide and Green Energy Lab - Dr. MVS Chandrashekhar

Coming Soon.
