Quantum Optoelectronics and Photonics Group

Welcome to the homepage of the Quantum Optoelectronics and Photonics Group! Led by electrical engineering professor David Burghoff, our mission is to:

  • Use nanoscale engineering to push beyond the limits of conventional electronics and photonics, exploiting quantum phenomena to create devices that interact with the world in extraordinary new ways.

  • Engineer new coherent processes to make devices that utilize the entire electromagnetic spectrum—particularly the extremely challenging terahertz and mid-infrared wavelength regimes.

  • Approach technology development from all levels, not only seeking to perform basic science and using newly-discovered phenomena to create devices, but also using those devices to create systems that seek to address the world’s key challenges.

We are currently hiring Ph.D. students and postdocs! For prospective students, please contact David Burghoff. For prospective postdocs, please refer to our ad.
