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.
Metalenses are compact lensing components based on rationally designed nanoscale building blocks. These planar devices are crucial for miniaturized imaging systems that can be integrated into portable electronic and optical devices. However, existing metalenses have...read more
