Creating The Future Of Optics And Photonics: UCF Provides An Overview Of The Research Underway In The College Of Optics And Photonics

Abstract:
Formed in 1986 as the Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers (CREOL) at the University of Central Florida, this program was the first photonic program in the United States to achieve the status of a full college headed by a dean. The College of Optics and Photonics is now internationally recognized as one of the top academic and research programs in optics and photonics in the world. Today, the college offers interdisciplinary graduate programs leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in optical science and engineering. CREOL and the Florida Photonics Center of Excellence (FPCE) are research centers within the college.

The research activities of the College faculty span the spectrum from basic science to prototype development, and the faculty vigorously pursues joint research projects with industry, academia, and government laboratories. Some areas of study within the college are: nanophotonics, biophotonics, imaging and displays, and ultra high-speed optical communications. This article provides insight into the top trends in the photonics field and the research topics currently being investigated at the college.
