Our Mission

Our nanophotonics research seeks to uncover the underlying physics in structured light-matter interactions at nanoscale. We aim to develop advanced optical materials and nanotechnology to unleash the full potential of structured light in optical and quantum information processing. Our developed photonic devices and systems harnessing multi-dimensions of light have significant research impact on a breadth of photonic applications, including optical and quantum imaging, communications, displays, and sensing.
