Our lab focuses on mesoscopic physics and nanophotonics. Our aim is to better understand and control light propagation, scattering, absorption and lasing in complex photonic nanostructures for a wide range of applications. We study unconventional lasers such as random lasers, chaotic, microcavity lasers, and explore their unique applications ranging from speckle-free imaging to multimodality microscopy, to name a few. We also invent novel photonic devices, for example, using a multimode fiber to make an ultrahigh resolution spectrometer.

Our interdisciplinary research bridges mesoscopic physics, nonlinear dynamics, laser physics, nanophotonics and biophotonics. The work involves nanofabtrication, material characterization, optical measurement with high spatial, spectral and temporal resolution, and numerical modeling.
