Postdoctoral Research Opportunity at Columbia University

Lightwave Research Laboratory

Department of Electrical Engineering

Columbia University in the City of New York

About Our Research Group

The Lightwave Research Laboratory, led by Professor Keren Bergman, aims to investigate the realization of dynamic optical data routing in transparent optical interconnection networks, developing potentially disruptive technology solutions with ultra-high throughput, minimal access latencies, and low power dissipation that remains independent of data capacity, ultimately capitalizing on the enormous bandwidth advantage enabled by dense wavelength division multiplexing.
