Welcome to the Electronic-Photonic Micro-systems lab at the University of Pennsylvania. Our Group studies integrated electronic-photonic co-design with the goal of improving the performance of electronic systems using photonic devices and improving the performance of photonic systems by incorporating electronic devices and techniques. Applications of electronic-photonic co-design include communication, imaging, Radar, LIDAR, and multi-modal bio-sensing. We design both electronic and photonic chips and package our fabricated chips to form the electronic-photonic system and we measure its performance. In monolithic approach, both electronic and photonic systems are designed and fabricated on a single platform.
We are also interested in low power integrated RF, mm-wave, and sub-mm-wave circuits and systems with applications in detection and sensing, communication, and bio-technology.
