Integrated Photonics

Hybrid Devices

  • We have several projects investigating light-matter interactions between the whispering gallery mode and different material coatings.  For example, we are studying how nanomaterial coatings which exhibit non-linear optical properties can be used to manipulate the optical behavior of the device.  We are also investigating using active materials, such as nonlinear optical polymers, organic small molecules, and 2D materials, as coatings to further improve or modify the behavior of integrated devices.

Integrated Photonics

  • We have projects which are devoted to developing new integrated optical devices, such as low threshold on-chip lasers and photonic circuitry, and using these devices for applications in quantum communications (collaborations with researchers globally). Additional projects are also geared to developing new optical instruments for diagnostics.
