Optoelectronics

The research in optoelectronics mainly focuses on optical design and characterization of optical systems. Different systems have been developed such as: integrated optical sensors, wide field of view optical receiver for OWC systems and fiber based optical devices.


Chracterization of integrated optical systems

Characterization of integrated optical systems including: waveguides, nano-wires fiber devices. Optical properties investigated are transmission, reflection and attentuation. Controlling those parameters can be used in applications such as sensing.

Scattering from nano rods

The scattering properties of ZnO nano-rods grown on flat substrates are investigated using in house built nephlometers. Scattering properties help optimizing the growht of the rods for maximum light coupling into optical fiber when the rods are grown on them.

Numerical modeling of optical systems

Numerical modeling of integrated optical systems and nano-structures: Waveguides/nano-wires Mode properties Device sensitivity to the changes of the surrounding refractive index optoResearch1 Integrated surface plasmon resonance Surface plasmon modes in thin film of gold caoted on nano-wire structure Sensitivity of the plasmon mode to the changes of the surrounding index optoResearch3 ZnO nano-rod structure Guidance properties of the nano-rod Scatterig phase function of the rod Sensitivity of the rod (guidance/scattering) to the changes of the surrounding index
