The Lightwave and Microwave Photonics Lab (WAVE Lab) at the University of Georgia, Athens has openings for graduate students with interests in Photonics, Lightwave Neuromorphic Signal Processing, and Microwave Photonics. Areas of research in WAVE Lab include optical hybrid analog/digital processing of signals based on neuromorphic algorithms, processing of microwave signals based on ultrafast optical techniques, and all-optical signal processing based on (nonlinear) photonics. We have a well-equipped research lab where we conduct experiments in the above areas.

While students who would like to pursue graduate studies in one of the general areas listed above are preferred, students are encouraged to develop their own research projects depending upon their interests and the resources in WAVE Lab. Students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. degree are preferred, though exceptional students interested in a M.S. degree will be considered. Graduate research assistantships are available that includes a monthly stipend and full tuition waiver.

Athens, home to the University of Georgia, is located 70 miles northeast of Atlanta and offers a strong health-care system, affordable home/apartment rental prices, and educational amenities. Unlike other engineering schools, the University of Georgia’s College of Engineering is organized without departmental boundaries to promote advanced studies at the interface of disciplines.

Prospective students are recommended to contact the WAVE Lab director – Dr. Mable Fok at and read the following webpages for more information. For full consideration, please submit applications no later than January 31, 2013.
