Fusing optics and electronic engineering in eco-friendly ways
Our laboratory conducts research on three major themes: (a) the production and evaluation of membranes that transmit light (optical waveguide), (b) technologies to separate and recycle glass and metals from spent cathode-ray tubes, liquid crystal panels, fluorescent tubes and other wastes and (c) the building and evaluation of micro, electro, mechanical systems (MEMS) that fuse light, electricity and machines. We study technologies to send signals by using light and fusing light technologies and machines while also paying attention to environmental and energy issues.
