Our main interest is nanophotonics, the study of how light interacts with nano- and microscale structures. We study nanophotonic structures such as photonic crystals, microresonators, and nanowires for applications in optical communications, energy, and biology. We use both theoretical and experimental techniques to study the basic science of nanophotonic materials, design novel devices, and optimize them for various applications.

Our group is affiliated with the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering in the Viterbi School of Engineering and the Department of Physics & Astronomy in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences at University of Southern California.
