Kelly Simmons Potter

Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor of Optical Sciences

Specific Research Interests: 

  • Development of elements for integrated optical systems using both optically active and passive novel photowritable materials.
  • Examination of single- and multiphoton processes leading to both linear and nonlinear response in optical materials as a result of exposure to either ionizing or non-ionizing radiation.
  • Research into the impact of defect physics on material optical behavior, waveguide device design and optical device performance.
