Research Summary

Research in the Laboratory for Nano and Micro Photonics (LaNMP) can be best summarized as exploration of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale. The main research focus areas are development of structures that confine light to enhance the strength of light-matter interaction such as nanocavities and artificially engineered optical materials such metamaterials and hybrid excitonic materials that display optoelectronic properties that surpass naturally occurring materials. These focus areas are motivated by the quest to develop next generation computing technologies including those that exploit the quantum property of light, ultrasensitive sensors, and high efficiency energy harvesting systems.
