Research Interests

Research Interests:

Our group is engineering the confinement of electrons and photons in small optical resonator cavities, for applications in communications, biology and nanotechnology. Our projects involve design, modeling, and nanofabrication of lasers, in particular, Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs). We are developing new optical communication technologies with drastically enhanced performance enabling higher functionality systems. Topics include: Semiconductor Vertical Cavity Lasers (VCSELs), Bio-photonics, Optical Communication, Nanofabrication, Optical Injection Locking, High-speed optical modulation.
