Electronic, Optoelectronic and Photonic Devices Research Group


The research group develops the modeling, design and simulation of electronic, optoelectronic and photonic devices for sensing and telecommunications, using various technologies (group IV semiconductors and compounds, III-V semiconductors, carbon nanotubes, and others). It is constituted by two sections, one (Photonics Research Group) mainly specialized in integrated photonic sensors for physical (angular velocity, electromagnetic field, temperature, strain, and so on), chemical and biochemical (gases, pollutants in liquids, and so on) analyte measurements, as well as fiber optic sensors, semiconductor lasers and other photonic devices. Recent important studies are focused on photonic sensing for high sensitivity detection of dangerous gases in mid-IR and novel concepts of optoelectronic devices based on nonlinear effects in silicon. The other section involves the Laboratory of Electron Devices, mainly focused both theoretically and experimentally on modeling of hetero-structure electron devices, characterization of thermal effects in electron devices and characterization, design and test of nanometer electronic systems and FET with carbon nanotubes. Details on research activities can be found by clicking on the relevant logo. The two sections work together on same topics (nonlinear optical devices, nanometer electron devices). Since 2004, the group has published more than 100 papers in international journals and book chapters, 130 papers in international conference proceedings, one international and two national patents, and five international books (one by Springer). Other details on actual research projects, as well as national and international collaborations, are in the specified web pages.
