To focus on improvement of sensors, electronics, electro-optics and energy systems, researchers at the University of Dayton, with a combined 15 patents and more than 600 publications, collectively established the Center of Excellence for Thin-Film Research and Surface Engineering (CETRASE).
CETRASE members represent a wide range of University programs: electrical and computer engineering, materials engineering, biology, physics, electro-optics as well as the University of Dayton Research Institute. Two are fellows of SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics. On campus, the buildings of Kettering Laboratories, College Park Center and Science Center house the state-of-art lab space and equipment. Researchers, who have collaborated on similar projects, work with comprehensive thin-film fabrication equipment, characterization equipment and multi-patented technologies.
Congratulations to CETRASE team members who made it possible.

The University of Dayton unveils the Center of Excellence for Thin-Film Research and Surface Engineering at 4 p.m. in the School of Engineering Innovation Center in Kettering Labs.
"We want to find ways to make better, more efficient, cost-effective sensors, electronics, electro-optics, and energy systems and hopefully create new jobs in the region," said Guru Subramanyam, chair of the University of Dayton electrical and computer engineering department.
"Many of us have collaborated or have been collaborating on similar projects," Subramanyam said. "It makes sense for us to put our heads together for a Center where we can coordinate activities, interact, and share common equipment and costs. We will have strength in numbers . . ."
