Hybrid Nanophotonic Materials and Devices

The Hybrid Integrated Photonics Sensors Lab is engaged in state-of-the-art research integrating hybrid materials with large scale silicon photonics circuits for novel applications in computing, communications and chem-bio sensing/ spectroscopy. In sensing and spectroscopy, our research aims to achieve low-cost sensors for environmental pollution monitoring and healthcare diagnostics. In computing, our research aims to achieve energy-efficient switches and modulators with hybrid materials. Devices studied in our group can also have potential applications in quantum photonic computing.
