Optical and Semiconductor Devices

The research is to develop new technologies that enable advances in materials, processes and device physics to be made; research addresses such topics as how can microtexturing be used to build composite materials with new properties; how does a new class of semiconductor based on organic materials work; how can optical gain be achieved within the dimensions of a small integrated circuit; how can the speed barriers of silicon microelectronics be exceeded; how can you build a small three-dimensional structure you can't touch; how can microengineered devices help computers understand and control the local environment.
