Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr. Park's research is centered at discovering new optical phenomena and applications using nanoscale materials and structures and has currently two major thrusts: nonlinear optical devices and biosensing/therapeutics. For nonlinear optical devices. Dr. Park is also developing devices based on chalcogenide glass for operations in the mid-infrared region for sensing, communications, and switching. For biosensing and therapeutics, Dr. Park is developing nanomaterials that efficiently upconvert frequencies and thereby enable new imaging, sensing and/or therapeutic approaches.

  • ECEN 3250 - Microelectronics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Fall 2020
    Develops a basic understanding of active semiconductor devices. Focuses on building an understanding of BJT and CMOS devices in both digital and analog applications.
  • ECEN 3400 - Electromagnetic Fields and Waves
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Electromagnetic fields are covered at an introductory level, starting with electrostatics and continuing with DC current, magnetostatics, time-varying magnetic fields, waves on transmission lines, Maxwell's equations and the basics of plane waves. The use of fields in inductors, capacitors, resistors, transformers, and energy and power concepts are studied.

    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
  • ECEN 5355 - Principles of Electronic Devices 1
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Relates performance and limitations of solid state devices to their structures and technology. Examines semiconductor physics and technology. Includes Pn-junction, Mos, and optoelectronic devices. For both advance circuit and device engineers. Recommended prerequisite: ECEN 3320.
  • ECEN 5915 - Foundations of Quantum Engineering
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021
    Introduces engineers to quantum theory. In this course you will learn how to describe many different physical systems (such as atoms, electrons, light, mechanical oscillators, and tops) mathematically. It also explores different notions of quantumness such as entanglement and non-contextuality. The foundations obtained in this course are important for further study of quantum hardware (sensors), communication, and computing. Same as ECEN 4915.
  • ECEN 6950 - Master's Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2020
