Harnessing light and its energy to create world-changing solutions
ECE is home to internationally recognized leaders in lasers and photonics – a field that pushes the frontiers of light to enable technologies of the future, from lasers for advanced medical devices to fiber optics for global communications. Boasting one of the most powerful lasers in the world, known as ALEPH, we are proud to be a part of LaserNetUS – a network of facilities operating high-power lasers.
