Professor Bahram Jalali has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering for his contributions to silicon photonics, high time-resolution scientific instruments, and biomedical imaging. For details, please refer to the official announcement from Samueli School...

World’s Fastest Time-of-Flight Camera

Time-of-flight 3D imaging is the key technology in autonomous cars, robotics, and remote sensing. Building on more than 20 years of research on photonic time stretch data acquisition, our laboratory recently demonstrated the world’s fastest time of flight 3D camera....

Research on Deep Cytometry Published in Scientific Reports

Our recent work "Deep Cytometry: Deep learning with Real-time Inference in Cell Sorting and Flow Cytometry" which shows that high-throughput label-free cell classification with high accuracy can be achieved through a combination of time stretch quantitative phase...

Kam Yan Hon's paper

Kam Yan Hon’s paper titled “The Third-Order Nonlinear Optical Coefficients of Si, Ge, and Si(1-x)Ge(x) in the midwave and longwave infrared” has been selected to be on the cover of Journal of Applied Physics. Congratulations!

Using a combination of semiconductor theory and experimental results from the scientific literature, we have compiled and plotted the key third-order nonlinear optical coefficients of bulk crystalline Si and Ge as a function of wavelength (1.5-6.7 um for Si and 2.0-14.7 um for Ge).
