The Harrison Research Lab focuses on developing photonic devices and architectures for use in large-scale digital logic circuits using high-powered simulations and standard micro- and nanofabrication techniques.  Specifically, this work will enable digital logic functionality for processing or routing digital information transmitted in the optical regime without needing to translate that information to an electrical signal.
