RESEARCH AREAS

 The Integrated Optics Lab of School of Computing at Universiti Utara Malaysia led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Angela Amphawan spearheads research in novel designs for integrated optical devices for next -generation optical computers. Future computers use light traveling through optical fiber interconnects to accelerate information transfer.  Intel established the first silicon-based 50Gbps optical data link using four 12.5Gbit/s lanes of different wavelength. We strive for a balanced deployment of optical system and information management architecture. We envisage to seamlessly aggregate and interface existing and future computers by bringing together diverse expertise and industry leaders for the generation and commercialization of related industrial applications.
