Prof. Alex Yasha Yi
Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA)
Welcome to Intelligent Optoelectronics Chip Laboratory!
We have a dynamic research team at University of Michigan, at dearborn campus, Lurie Nano Fabrication at ann arbor campus.
We have close collaboration with MIT Microsystems Technology Laboratory.
Our research (> 15 US & International issued patents and > 100 top journal publications) is focused on chip-scale intelligent & integrated nano optoelectronics, photonics and electronics with applications on:
Artificial intelligence, Renewable energy, Smart micro sensors; Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality, Solid state on-chip Lidar for autonomous driving/UAVs/Robotics; Telecommunications; Solid state lighting.
Our lab has been awarded a variety of projects from federal agencies and industries recently.
We are recruiting: We are looking for highly motivated Ph.D students and Postdoc Associates, please send me an email if you are interested!
