The Sorger Group and Orthogonal Physics Enabled Nanophotonics (OPEN) Lab is looking for 2 post-doctoral researchers!
Welcome to the OPEN Lab
Professor Volker Sorger's research team is investigating atto-Joule opto-electronics devices, optical information processing and computing, and smart IoT technologies. We follow an interdisciplinary approach that draws expertise from electrical engineering, materials science, and physics. We are answering key fundamental questions in information processing and logic and bridge these with National Grand Challenges relating to Reverse-Engineering the Brain, Enhance Virtual Reality, and Materials Genome Initiative. We are cross-pollinators with a core in nano opto-electronics. Our capabilities range from high-speed opto-electronic device fab and tests and novel materials integration, over IoT prototyping, to simulation and analysis. Recent demonstrations include the first 100’s of atto-Joule efficient electro-optic modulator on a Silicon platform and world's first semiconductor plasmon laser. Finally, our team is actively engaged in STEM outreach and optical science-policy such as the IEEE Rebooting Computing and National Photonic Initiative. Prof. Sorger is the Director of the Orthogonal-Physics-Enabled-Nanophotonics (OPEN) Lab at GWU, and a member of the Board-of-Meetings for OSA, and SPIE Symposia Committee. He published over 110 peer-reviewed publications which were cited about 5000 times.
