Electronics, Photonics and Device Technologies 

Sensor Map The EPDT Program seeks to improve the fundamental understanding of devices and components based on principles of electronics, photonics, electromagnetics, electro-optics, electromechanics, and related physical phenomena, and to enable the design of integrated microsystems which define new capabilities and applications.

Nanotubes Experimental and theoretical studies of nanoscale electronic and photonic devices and principles, use of nanotechnology for device fabrication, and related topics in quantum engineering and quantum computing are of particular current interest.

Microsensors and microactuators are used in diverse areas ranging from industry and defense applications to biology and medicine.

Antenna Microchip Adaptive and reconfigurable devices and low power/low noise electronics are used in novel network architectures and advanced communications systems.

The program invites proposals for research that can lead to high performance of micro- and nanoscale devices, components, and materials, advanced methods of design, modeling, and simulation of devices and components, and improved techniques for processing, fabrication, and manufacturing, including plasma-based processing techniques.
