Work in this area applies the physics of electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, and the solid state to implement devices and systems for applications including energy, quantum technologies, sensing, communication, and computation. Our efforts span theory and development of new electronic and optical devices and materials, micro-electromechanical systems, acoustic and optical sensing and imaging, quantum control of individual atoms near absolute zero temperature, and experiments on high-energy plasmas at temperatures close to those at the center of the sun.
The faculty researchers in this area exemplify the collaborative nature of the work done at Cornell Engineering.
