Harnessing the Power of Photonics

Our vision in exploring biophotonics lies at studying the intersection of biological and micro/nano scale systems through a wide variety of optical phenomena. Our efforts have been dedicated to apply our expertise in electromagnetics, photonics, and micro/nano-fabrication to develop next-generation technologies that solve challenging problems in life sciences, agriculture, environment, and sustainable energy. The group members are young, energetic, and talented who came from multiple disciplines, including electrical engineering, material science, and biophysics. They enjoy fostering innovative technologies, as well as obtaining knowledge and skills for future career successes.
