Lasers, photonics and bio-photonics lab of chemistry, physics, medicine and electrical engineering SUNY Distinguished Professor Paras Prasad.
Photonic and electronic device engineers and scientists are
developing new optical devices based on metamaterials and novel
structures that can manipulate light in ways not possible with
They are making nanoscale electronic devices with the potential
to outperform current state-of-the-art silicon-based
microelectronics technology. By developing and testing methods of
packaging microelectronics they are effectively dissipating heat,
allowing devices to run faster and be packed at ever higher
They design and fabricate microfluidic devices that couple
optics and electronics with fluid flow for micro-scale chemical
analysis. They design new solar cells with improved light-trapping
and charge-extraction relative to conventional structures.
