Advanced Photonics Systems

An important aspect of the Institute's research programs is its "systems-oriented" focus on real-world applications. Critical to these applications programs, the Institute pursues basic and applied research in a systems focus.

The Advanced Photonics Systems program comprises several important research activities related to the development and implementation of systems:

  • application of virtual reality for there-dimensional data interface with potential applications in telemedicine;
  • design and testing of system-on-chip integrated circuits, distributed sensor networks, dynamic power management and fault tolerance in real-time embedded systems, design automation techniques for microfluidics-based biochips, and chip cooling using droplet-based microfluidics.
