David Miller

Professor of Electrical Engineering and of Applied Physics

Professor Miller’s group performs research on the use of optics in switching and interconnection systems as well as exploring the fundamental limits for optics in interconnections. Particular areas of interest are quantum well and nanophotonic optics and optoelectronics. Miller’s group has developed, in collaboration with Harris’s group, new high speed reflective modulators based on Ge quantum wells that are compatible with Si substrates. This provides a pathway to the achievement of monolithically integrated Si chips that combine CMOS electronics with high performance optical interconnects.
