Welcome to PNRL

The Photonics and Networking Research Laboratory (PNRL) at Stanford University investigates a broad range of research in photonics and optical networks, under the guidance of Professor Leonid Kazovsky. Our current research focuses on passive optical network designs, optical and wireless access convergence, metro-access interface, packet-switched photonics, and dynamic circuit switched transport for the Internet core.

The group was founded in 1990 and is part of the Electrical Engineering department.

Our research lab has equipment of around $5 million in total, and we currently have 13 group members and 30 graduated PhDs.
