Dr. Kyle Renshaw joined the faculty at the University of Central Florida in August 2015. He is an Assistant Professor in CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics, where he has established the Thin-Film Optoelectronics (TFO) group. The TFO group conducts research in advanced sensor, LED and photovoltaic technologies based on organic and hybrid organic/inorganic semiconductors. As a new faculty member, he is building up new thin-film fabrication and device characterization facilities to complement the extensive capabilities already in place at CREOL.
Prior to joining CREOL, Dr. Renshaw received his PhD in Applied Physics and his MS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. He joined the Advanced Technology Center at Northrop Grumman in 2013 after completing his dissertation work. There he supported the development, testing and characterization of imaging systems operating in spectral bands from the ultraviolet to the long-wave infrared. He also supported sensor integration, algorithm development, and modelling and simulation for various electro-optical systems (including tracking, missile warning and countermeasure systems).
