Nanophotonic devices

Robert Magnusson

Robert Magnusson, electrical engineering professor and the Texas Instruments Distinguished University Chair in Nanoelectronics, is working on a $1.2 million collaborative agreement with the Army Research Laboratory to develop nanophotonic devices that could have applications in thermal imaging and resonant filtering.

Nanophotonic devices are used to shape the spectrum of light via photonic lattices and resonance, but their application generally has been limited to short wavelengths. Dr. Magnusson and his team are developing devices that will work in the longwave infrared spectral region, making them useful for thermal imaging technology and for sensors in medical diagnostics, chemical analyses, and environmental monitoring.
