Welcome to the Nanophotonic Device Research Group (NPDG) in CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics at the University of Central Florida. The research group, directed by Prof. Winston V. Schoenfeld, was started in 2004 to expand and diversify the in-house production of nanophotonic devices at the College of Optics and Photonics. The group was the first to establish molecular beam epitaxial growth at UCF, supporting both oxide and nitride-based wide band gap semiconductor compounds. Primary research activities in the group include epitaxial growth of deep-UV solar blind oxide semiconductors, deep-UV detectors and emitters, hybrid organic-inorganic photovoltaics, quantum dot based quantum networks, and advanced light emitting diode (LED) displays and systems.
