The Integrated Photonic Emerging Solutions (IPES) laboratory was established at CREOL, The College of Optics and Photonics of the University of Central Florida in 2008. Funded by DARPA, NSF, ONR, NASA, DOE, as well as private companies like Harris Corporation, the lab's research philosophy is to conduct  groundbreaking research on ultracompact integrated photonic device physics and circuit design, nanofabrication and characterization, as emerging solutions for a variety of engineering applications, such as data- and tele-communication, microwave engineering and nonlinear and quantum information systems in the visible to the mid-infrared wavelengths and on materials ranging from silicon and III-V compound semiconductors, to nonlinear dielectrics and glasses.


The lab envisions two core missions:


(a) Addressing critical problems faced by the photonics industry today through innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in integrated devices and circuits on semiconductors, dielectrics, glasses, etc.



(b) Educating a new generation of creative and highly-skilled photonic device scientists and engineers, who will be the driving force for technological innovation in industry and academia.


A wide variety of funded research projects in integrated photonics are currently underway. For more information, feel free to contact us.
