Electronics and Photonics

Area 1

The Electronics and Photonics Area at WVU is comprised of a close-knit set of interdependent and collaborating groups exploring novel materials, structures and devices for achieving next-generation electronic, photonic and fluidic circuit and system functions. In most cases, our research groups are highly interdisciplinary with students and faculty spanning the engineering, physical and health sciences.

Our groups work together to develop and maintain an extensive lab environment for design, growth, fabrication and characterization as well as circuit and system-on-chip design, test, and evaluation. Our group founded and now shares in the oversight of the WVU Nanosystems Engineering Shared Clean Room, just one part of the extensive shared facilities available for research through the WVNano Initiative, in which our area plays a key role.

Together with the specialized labs of the faculty a full suite of capabilities are in place for students to pursue their research.
