Research:

     The Center for Nanophotonics conducts research and development on manipulation of photons-electrons in nano-scale materials for innovative photonic devices and emerging technologies. The Center’s research areas cover a broad spectrum, ranging from basic to applied, and dealing with state-of-the-art nano-scale material synthesis, fundamental physics, device fabrication and testing.

     In particular, our research is dedicated to the advancement of III-nitride wide bandgap semiconductors (BN, GaN, AlN, AlGaN, InGaN, and InAlGaN). These materials have contributed on the grandest scale to many technological advances including UV/blue/green/white LEDs, solid-state lighting, UV/blue/green laser diodes, UV/visible detectors, and high temperature/power transistors. Our group’s concentration areas are epitaxial growth, micro- and nano-structure and device fabrication, and fundamental optical and transport investigations. We have pioneered the developments of the following emerging technologies:
