Northwestern University Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science

Center for Photonic Communication and Computing


Center for Photonic Communication and Computing (CPCC) at Northwestern University conducts leading edge, fundamental science and engineering research for the development of advanced optical communication and computing systems.

Specifically, the focus of our research is making optical and optoelectronic technologies that push the limits of communication, signal processing, and computing byincreasing speeds, improving device and system integration and exploiting fundamental laws of nature. CPCC provides a venue for collaboration, coordination, dissemination, and promotion of research and teaching activities in the aforementioned areas. We are located at the McCormick School of Engineering on the Evanston Campus of Northwestern University.
