Welcome to Zhou Lab, located at NanoFAB Center, Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Texas at Arlington.

Dr. Zhou’s group is carrying out various active research projects in the areas of infrared photonics, silicon photonics, and solar cells, etc, based on photonic crystals, semiconductor nanomembranes, quantum dots, and other nanoscale structures. The group works on all aspects of device research, including design, simulation, fabrication, and characterization. Major research funding support comes from NSF, AFRL, AFOSR, ARO, CONTACT, SBIR, STTR, UT TIF, and DoD MURI etc.


Professor Weidong Zhou has been elected a Fellow of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.
