Research Group |

Professor Yariv's research group has a history of pioneering the field of optoelectronics, as well as opening up new fields of study. Distributed Feedback (DFB) Semiconductor Lasers, Integrated Optoelectronic Circuits, Optical Phase Conjugation, External Cavity Tunable Semiconductor Lasers, Quantum Well Infrared Photodetectors (QWIP's), and all-fiber add/drop filters have found their beginnings here in this research group. Today, advances continue to be made in the research thrusts of analog and digital signal propagation in fibers, photonic bandgap crystal devices, fiber lasers, and sources for Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM).
