At Phoebus Optoelectronics, we focus on the custom design and commercialization of advanced light and radiation controlling and detecting materials and devices.  Depending on the application, we design devices that exhibit negative index of refraction, high permeability, light trapping and harvesting, photon sorting, and phase control.  We combine physical phenomena from the fields of metamaterials, metasurfaces, photonic crystals, and plasmonics to create next-generation devices that operate throughout the electromagnetic spectrum, from ultraviolet to microwave.  Our devices are designed for applications that include: 

  • Advanced wavelength and polarization filtering 
  • Tunable optical components
  • Advanced solar cells and other renewable energy devices
  • High resolution infrared imaging systems
  • Beam forming and steering
  • Chemical and biological toxin sensors

Phoebus Optoelectronics has over 10 years of experience working with the US Department of Defense, NASA, the NSF and several major defense contractors, such as Raytheon Vision Systems, Lockheed Martin, and Ball Aerospace.  Phoebus has received numerous SBIR and STTR Phase I and Phase II contracts.  Phoebus is ITAR and EAR compliant.

Phoebus Optoelectronics collaborates with research laboratories at Clarkson University and the City University of New York, including the Center for Metamaterials (CfM), a National Science Foundation Industry/University Research Center at Clarkson University.  Phoebus and the CfM have advanced electrical and electromagnetic/optical design, fabrication and testing tools.  Additionally, Phoebus makes use of advanced nanofabrication facilities including the Nanoscale Science and Technology Center (CNF) at Cornell University, Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) at Princeton University and the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
