The group is working in the field of broadly defined ultrafast optics, with specific research interests in nonlinear dynamics, optical devices, and biophotonics. We study novel nonlinear dynamics in micro- and nano-photonic structures, and incorporate the dynamics to enhance optical device performances with a focus on bio-sensing and bio-imaging applications. We are also interested in functional integration of photonic devices with microfluidic, MEMS, photopolymer, and 2D materials to broaden the scope of chip-scale sensing devices. In addition, we also study the carrier dynamics in mid-infrared and terahertz materials for next generation optoelectronics.
