Professor Hajimiri's group does research on electronic and photonics integrated circuits and their applications in various disciplines. These applications span a wide range from mm-wave, THz, and high-speed wireless and wireline communications to sensing, imaging, projections, medical diagnostics and therapeutics, as well as precision measurement techniques. His group takes a holistic approach to come up with architectural innovations based on a fundamental understanding of the underlying physics and mathematics of practical systems. His research group is involved in both the theoretical analysis of the problems in integrated circuits as well as practical implementations of the next generation of integrated circuits.

Primary ongoing research areas:

  • Fundamentals
  • mm-Wave Silicon-based Circuits and Arrays
  • Silicon photonics
  • Self-correcting and Multi-mode Reconfigurable Circuits 
  • High-frequency Power Generation
  • Medical solutions: diagnostics and therapeutics 
  • Wireline communications
  • Wireless power transfer
  • Oscillators
