[Source: Bio-Medicine.org] - Arizona State University's expanding research, education and entrepreneurial endeavors in photonics engineering and science has led to formation of the Center for Photonics Innovation.

The Arizona Board of Regents recently approved establishment of the center, which will combine university research and teaching resources in electrical engineering, physics, materials science and engineering, and bioengineering.

The center's research focuses on semiconductor photonic materials and devices and their applications. Photonics involves the generation and control of nearly all forms of light, including visible, infrared and ultraviolet light.

Its applications include communications, information processing, sensing, imaging, solar cells, solid state lighting, medical instruments, and technologies used in environmental-protection efforts.
