Electronic & Photonic Materials

Electronic and photonic materials constitute a research area that has the potential to address many of the grand challenges currently facing society, including better diagnostic tools, creating better chemical and gas sensors, and other novel electronic and photonic technologies.

Multidisciplinary collaboration is fundamental at Duke

Multidisciplinary collaboration is a fundamental component at Duke. Our collaborative process merging basic science and engineering yields novel capabilities for which applications are sought, and fundamental challenges in existing applications are identified and novel solutions are developed.

As a result of our approach, our graduate students conduct multidisciplinary research that seeks to solve fundamental challenges related to complex problems.

Research strengths include:

  • Micro- and nano-fluidic systems
  • Optical biochemical sensors
  • Integrated circuit design
  • Nanostructured materials and devices
