Welcome to the

Sensors and Technology Laboratory

Department of Electrical Engineering

California NanoSystems Institute

University of California, Los Angeles


The members of the Sensors and Technology Laboratory investigate micro and nanoscale sensors, as well as general fabrication technologies at those scales.  Topics of the lab include fundamental limits of physical sensors (e.g., energy dissipation in resonators), the interface of microstructures with biology, and microscale magnetic devices for free electron lasers.
