CEMOS is located at the University of Massachusetts -- Lowell, a
comprehensive University with 12,000 students.
The Center was established in 1990 to integrate our students with the
surrounding photonics industry through cutting edge research in several
areas in electro-optics.
development in the Center focuses on the interaction of electromagnetic
fields with materials and devices of use in microwave and optical systems and
applications. Of particular interest are the following: scattering and
inverse scattering, plasmas and computational electromagnetics, antennas and
active antennas, optical correlators and security applications, novel materials, wave propagation and guided waves, near field microscopy, imaging
and target identification, optical interconnects and superresolution. The Center has several well equipped laboratories and offers courses for
credit and training.
The mission of CEMOS includes:
Continue the development of a resource center for
electro-optics and electromagnetic materials, offering both systems and
materials support for local industry. With this expertise, encourage and
collaboration between the Center and industry.
Carry out fundamental
into scientific and engineering concepts in photonic technologies;
this includes the development and characterization of new materials and
the evaluation of optoelectronic devices, systems, and networks.
Train graduate and undergraduate students in these
areas of science and engineering.
