The over-arching mission of the research group is to develop novel nonlinear materials and integrated optical devices that can be used in portable disease diagnostics and telecommunications. Our research efforts include a wide range of topics including materials synthesis, integrated optics and instrumentation development, cell/bacteria growth, and computational modeling.
To enable this research breadth, our group includes researchers with diverse academic and research backgrounds, and we have numerous ongoing collaborations, both at USC and at other institutions around the world. Financial support comes from several different agencies, industries, and foundations.
Note: Only technical conference presentations are included in this list. Dept seminars, outreach-type presentations, and panels are not shown. However, the PI and group members routinely participate in these types of events.
In addition to our Twitter and Facebook accounts, we also have a YouTube channel (Armani Research Lab). This channel has several different playlists separating group member interviews, research and how-to videos. We hope that it provides insight into the group as well as a useful resource for other researchers working in the field.
