Research Overview

In the Nano-optoelectronics Lab, we theoretically and experimentally explore the interactions of light with nano-structures, and use new understandings to propose and realize novel optoelectronic devices on silicon chips, e.g., ultrafast silicon-on-chip laser, MEMS-tunable silicon-on-chip spectrometers, and high-power silicon-on-chip lasers. As shown in the figure below, our grand vision is to build a silicon IC platform where photonics and electronics are integrated, providing chip solutions for various applications including optical interconnects, quantum photonics, disease diagnosis chip, and smart sensor chips.
