Laboratory Learning Program 2023 - Quantum Cascade ring laser systems design (ECE-02)

Research Opportunity Number: ECE-02

Project Title:  Quantum Cascade ring laser systems design

Project Summary: Our research group studies chip-scale ring laser systems based on Quantum Cascade lasers; ring laser systems consist of multiple coupled ring or stadium lasers as well as coupled waveguides for signal read-out.  This project is focused on the design and fabrication (on the computer) of the mask sets used in chip design. 

Student Roles and Responsibilities: The student learn about the background of the research project and about our team's research; the use of software packages provided by our group; to design and draw optical mask designs.

Additional Considerations:  The student should be available about 30 hrs/week; as much as possible: attend weekly group meetings and group luncheons with graduate students and undergraduate summer interns
