Message from the Chair


I’d like to welcome you to the Photonics group web pages.

We are one of eight research groups in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. As you will see from these pages we have strong links with many of these groups and with researchers across the University of Toronto. This is a reflection of the broad research areas which now fall under the heading of photonics. Our research interests range from fundamental optical physics, through novel device design to the application of photonics in sensing and communications systems. More details about the research interests of our faculty members can be found in their websites.

If you would like any further information about our activities, or are interested in graduate research please feel free to contact either myself or one of my colleagues. I hope you enjoy our web site.

Photonics Group Chair
