Welcome to the Laboratory for Sub-λ Optics.
As optical physicists and electrical engineers, we explore how light interacts with matter and then exploit these interactions to enable advanced photonic devices.
Our research focuses on the unique optical properties of nanostructured materials including:
Using structured optical environments to promote magnetic light-matter interations via the natural, optical-frequency magnetic dipole transitions in lanthinde emitters.
Enhancing light-matter interactions to realize subwavelength scale optical sources, on-chip optical amplifiers, single-photon optical switch, and high-efficiency LEDs.
Leveraging the resonant light-matter interactions in epitaxial thin films to enable direct-laser writing of graphene devices.
