Physical Optics and Electronics Group, Prof. Rajeev Ram
We invent new optoelectronic devices to solve problems in communications, energy, and bioengineering. Our research focuses on the boundary of systems and device physics. The systems drive the need for creative solutions and validate the utility of our scientific work.
