Our mission is to provide infrastructure for students, faculty, and industrial partners who share research interests in optoelectronics and optical communications, and to promote awareness of the importance of optical technology.
The Center's technical focus from the beginning, and which continues to strengthen, is in advancing the integration of optical and electronic functionality for next generation photonic devices and systems. Particular applications of this research focus have evolved over the last three years in sensors and communications-related modules as well as developing methods for their low-cost manufacture.

Prof. Astratov’s research group is featured in December 2013 Issue of Optics and Photonics News (OPN). This special issue of OPN highlights the most exciting peer-reviewed optics research to have emerged over the past 12 months.
Here is the link to the OPN article:
Below, OSA President, Donna Strickland, explains what it means to be included in the December 2013 Issue of OPN:
In her message she says: “This was a banner year for the special issue: While the OPN team typically receives about 80 submissions to be considered for publication, this year they were inundated with a record breaking 162! What that means is that the competition for one of the 30 coveted slots was stiffer than ever.”
