ABOUT

We are a highly interdisciplinary research group in nanoscience and engineering, with expertise in optical and electrical measurements, material synthesis, and theoretical modeling. Our research has primarily focused on the interaction of light with nanostructures, leading to exotic electromagnetic properties not found naturally. These phenomena have plentiful applications in photonics, imaging, energy, and others.
