The RIT Nanophotonics Group carries out research on integrated photonic devices and systems. The lab is also used by Microsystems Engineering faculty and students for various experiments, such as, Terahertz measurements and Time-Resolved Photoluminescence. Special equipment in the lab includes a Ti: Sapphire Laser, Optical Parametric Oscillator, Atomic Force Microscope, Ion Mill, Cryogenic Optoelectronic Probe Station, and Telecom test equipment.
The lab was established with a gift from Joseph M. Lobozzo II, the founder of Rochester-based JML Optical Industries.
Equipment was also obtained with support from the National Science Foundation and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
