Testimonials

  • Burak Baylav - PhD Graduate
    I had access to the latest technology, tools and data. It was a dream come true and I was able to use this relationship for my Ph.D. research.”
  • Cory Cress - PhD Graduate
    During my time at RIT, I performed research in the NanoPower Research Labs. It was here that I learned how to create nanomaterials and devices. I learned how to understand them, and test their performance. Now, I use these skills at the US Naval Research Lab in Washington, DC. My work here has a massive impact on how electronics are created.
  • Peng Xie - PhD Graduate
    I found my Microsystems experience prepared me well for the challenges of industry. During my Ph.D. program, I had taken a 1-year internship at IMEC as well as a 4 months internship at GlobalFoundries. These experiences helped me to better understand the workspace, expand my professional network and get a pulse of where the industry is heading. With my solid preparation at RIT, I am confident that I am ready to take on any challenges in the future.
  • Monica Kempsell Sears - PhD Graduate
    I’ve always wanted to be one of the people who figures out how to push this field further and further—and now I am.
  • Anand Gopalan - PhD Graduate
    “While working toward my PhD in Microsystems at RIT, I was exposed to cutting edge technology with the opportunity to be part of industry supported research.”

  • The Semiconductor Photonics and Electronics Group focuses on developing highly efficient III-V and III-Nitride semiconductors for photonic, optoelectronic, and electronic devices. High-efficiency III-V and III-Nitride semiconductor based photonic and optoelectronic devices such as lasers and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are considered as promising candidates for next generation communication and illumination system.  The research group is...

  • Our research group works on cryptographic engineering. In short, the research group is involved in the design, implementation, and optimization of crypto-systems in embedded hardware and software. In addition, the group actively works on emerging topics in side-channel analysis attacks and countermeasures. The research conducted in this group includes a number of abstraction levels, including hardware micro architecture and platform specific...

  • The Nano-Bio Interface Laboratory (NBIL) investigates several aspects critical to the interface of nanotechnology and biology, including nanomanufacturing, nanomanipulation, technology-biology interactions, and biomedical applications. The NBIL aims to create cutting-edge nanobiotechnology, advance knowledge in nanoscience and biology, and train the next generation of scientists and engineers at the interface of nanotechnology and biology....

  • The conversion of light from the sun into electrical energy is playing a very important role in our current challenge for alternative energy technologies, to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The vision of Dr. Hubbard’s research group is to accelerate scientific breakthroughs in the discovery of materials and structures that will advance the frontier of the conversion of light to electricity....


  • Effective manipulation of fluids at the micro/nanometer scale is of great interest in fluid dynamics, biological processes, and material synthesis. Microfluidics together with nanofabrication provides a fine control of fluid transport and interfacial dynamics, and therefore offers a wealth of ways to harness the processes of multiphase flow at the microscale. Our group takes microfluidics and nanofabrication as the main technical...
