The Photonics Laboratory is developing equipment
to use autofluorescent Raman spectroscopy of human blood serum
to detect cancer.
Whether developing stems on a chip, or building a Raman spectrometer
to detect cancer in blood serum, research activity in the department
is dedicated to extending the capability of electrical and computer
Research efforts range from the highly theoretical to the very
applied, and is ongoing in all of the major areas of the field
today. Our programs are focused on extending the base of knowledge,
developing and transferring technology in support of the state's
and the nation's industrial activity, and providing students
at all levels with exposure and experience in cutting edge pursuits
in their field.
The Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
is a leader in encouraging undergraduate students to participate
in research efforts. Our faculty, noted for its collaborative
spirit, are engaged in projects that cross disciplines, universities,
and national borders. Many of our groups and centers are among
the top in the world in their specialty.
Research expenditures for 1999/2000 neared $21 million. This
is an indication of the growing reputation of our research program
and the dedication and energy of all of the faculty and students
