Physical electronics and photonics

Physical electronics and photonics (formerly solid-state electronics) deals with circuits and devices built from and contained within solid materials. Some examples are microchips, LED and LCD devices. The field covers topics that include semiconductor devices and materials, characterization, photonic/photovoltaic devices, semiconductor processing/intelligent control, nanoelectronics, computational electronics and molecular electronics and transport.

  • Learn about area faculty
  • Hear about area courses and research
  • Get information on careers

Fall 2021 seminar recordings


Electromagnetics is the study of the effect of charges at rest and in motion. This field analyzes, models and designs antenna systems, radio frequency/microwave circuits, fiber optics and electronics packaging.

Power systems

Our electric power and energy systems program is one of the largest in the country and has a variety of research expertise, simulation tools and experimental capabilities available. The program has three subdivisions in power generation, transmission and distribution and electricity utilization.
