Demetris L. Geddis is an associate professor in the Department of Engineering at Norfolk State University.
He has extensive research experience in the areas of Integrated optoelectronics, Optics, Microelectronics,
and Electromagnetics. He has worked as a Research and Design Engineer at Motorola and Bell laboratories. Also, he worked at NASA Langley Research Center as a NASA faculty fellow for the Nondestructive Evaluation Sciences Branch
where he performed research in the area of optical fiber sensing for real time health monitoring of aerospace vehicles.
Current research interests and publications are in the areas of Photonics, Optoelectronics, Microelectronics, Heterogeneous
thin film integration, single-fiber bi-directional communications, optical sensing, and ring lasers. Prof. Geddis joined Norfolk State University faculty as an Assistant Professor in 2004.
From 2008 to 2011, he was a Research Engineer at the Georgia Tech Research Institute where he fabricated scalable multiplexed
ion traps for quantum computing applications. Prof. Geddis returned to NSU as an Associate Professor in 2011.
His research interests include:
Heterogeneous thin film integration
Single-fiber Bi-directional Communications
