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

Specifically, the focus of research is on optical and optoelectronic systems that push the technological limits to ever increasing speeds or levels of integration or exploit the fundamental laws of nature to accomplish communication, signal processing, and computing in radically new ways. The Center provides a venue for collaboration, coordination, dissemination, and promotion of research and teaching activities in the above areas. We are located at the McCormick School of Engineering on the Evanston Campus of Northwestern University.
