Research

 

Our research is focused on the interaction between light and matter at the micro and nano-scale. We build nanoscale optical devices such as  cavities and waveguides using optical and electron beam lithography  techniques - the same process used in advanced microelectronics devices. Combining these advanced fabrication techniques with materials displaying high refractive index, such as silicon, silicon nitride, and glass, we are able to confine light in very small structures  (sub-micron). In such tight confining structure, a plethora of new and enhanced effects may be explored within a scientific viewpoint, e.g., quantum mechanics of mesoscopic objects, nonlinear dynamics, and low threshold nonlinear optics; or within a technological viewpoint, e.g., mass sensors, optical modulation, and RF oscillators.
