Welcome to the Opto-Electronics & Lightwave Engineering Group (OLEG), where we study and apply light-matter interactions in soft-condensed matter, and which is directed by Dr. Michael Escuti (Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering). To learn more about our group, please see our About/Contact page.

Our Focus

Our focus is on advanced optical / electrical / fluidic systems with an emphasis on the following elements: “Soft” Materials (liquid crystals, functional polymers), Holography, Micro-fluidics, Optical Trapping, and Numerical Simulations.

Research Areas

We principally build prototypes and study basic questions related to the following application areas:

  • Liquid Crystal Displays (ultra-efficient) LCDs
  • Optofluidic Devices for Manipulation of Cells & Nanoparticles
  • Photonic Switches and Tunable Filters
  • Optical Beamsteering
  • Spectral and Imaging Polarimetry and Spectrometers
  • Organic Light Emitting Devices
  • Integrated Biophotonics
  • Numerical Modeling
