My group's research focuses on novel materials and devices to exploit interactions of light with matter:

  1. Chalcogenide glass materials and devices for sensing and nonlinear optics;
  2. Light management in concentrated photovoltaics and thin film solar cells;
  3. On-chip magneto-optical isolation and nonreciprocal photonics;
  4. Photonic integration on unconventional substrates; and
  5. Materials and devices for infrared imaging, spectroscopy, and advanced manufacturing.
Course III faculty were involved with the Manhattan Project.
