The University of Illinois has a long history of excellence in research and education. The Illinois Program for Photonics and Optoelectronics at the University of Illinois was formed in 2002 by a group of faculty with research interests in optics, optoelectronics, and photonics systems. Our faculty members are from various laboratories (Everitt Laboratory, Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, the Beckman Institute, Coordinated Science Laboratory, Loomis Laboratory, and Materials Research Laboratory) on campus and conduct research on many exciting projects.
