"But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?" and "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that; hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that".

We will examine what great experiences optoelectronics brings to our lives through display, communication, search and fantasy.
Jasprit Singh (UM Professor, EECS and Applied Physics) explores using semiconductors for technologies that form the basis of "The Knowledge Age." His additional research interests blend technology and ideas from yoga to explore new designs and practices intended to answer the question, "How can the intersection of best lessons in technology and yoga reduce the gap between knowledge and action?" The answers would lead towards practices and technologies that enhance mindfulness.
