Summary of Activities/Interests

Research Interests:  Prof. Hoffman's mid-infrared and THz optoelectronics research is focused on understanding quantum phenomena for the development of new optical materials, sources, and detectors.  Much of his work focuses on quantum engineering, where hundreds of layers of extremely thin semiconductors are designed to form a material with customized optical, electrical, and quantum properties.  These designer materials are fabricated into devices that are characterized in his laboratory.  

Prof. Hoffman's research group is always looking for new undergraduate researchers, graduate students, and post-doc.  If you are interested, please contact him directly. 

Courses: EE40478 - Introduction to Quantum Computing; EE60556 - Fundamentals of Semiconductor Physics


Designing Next-Generation Optical Antennas

March 9, 2019

Without antennas, the world would be a much different place. NDEE professor Anthony J. Hoffman is working toward leveraging these devices to control light instead of radio waves.

Designing next-generation optical antennas

March 8, 2019

Antennas catch radio waves from the air and convert the energy into electrical signals. They can also convert electrical signals into radio waves. Optical engineers and scientists, like Associate Professor Anthony J. Hoffman, are working toward leveraging these devices to control light instead of radio waves.
