The Emerging Materials, Components and Devices lab solves the great device challenges of the future. Materials physicists are researching material structures at the micro and nanometer levels to improve data transmission systems and advance data networking capabilities. Research projects within this area include:

  • III-V lab research consortium with Nokia Bell Labs, Thales and CEA-LETI
  • Silicon Optoelectronics
  • ASICs and Hybrid Devices
  • Multimedia
  • Energy efficiency and thermal management
  • Nanomaterials
  • Quantum computing
  • Physiological communications

Featured Materials and Devices Research Project – Physiological Communications

We are laying the foundations of future networks with advanced research in photonics, microelectronics, materials science, nanomaterials, multimedia, and quantum computing. We are also crossing the boundaries into physiological networks.  Our work advances the state-of-the-art in communication speed, cost, diversity, and intelligence.

The exploratory research in physiological communications conducted by Shreyas Shah and his team is about identifying the methods and materials required for developing a future device that can look beyond vital signs to track factors that are more biochemical in content in order to generate far deeper insights into one’s health.
