Making Precious Metals More Precious
Transforming Light by Nanostructured Materials
Making Ordinary Materials Extraordinary
Our research focuses on controlling materials at the 100-nanometer scale and investigating their size and shape-dependent properties. We have developed massively parallel, multi-scale patterning tools to generate hierarchical, anisotropic, and 3D hard and soft materials with applications in imaging, sensing, wetting, and cancer therapeutics.
Continuous-wave (CW) lasing at room temperature is critical for integration with opto-electronic devices and optimal modulation of optical interactions. Plasmonic nanocavities integrated with gain can generate coherent light at sub-wavelength scales, while...
