Nanophotonics and Nanotechnology


Nanophotonics research explores fundamental science in optics and their light-matter interactions at the nanoscale, and it develops various small-scale photonic devices. Nanotechnology is providing the required fabrication and measurement technologies for developing such nanoscale photonic and electronic components.

Current research projects at TTU include the development of III-nitride wide bandgap semiconductors (GaN, AlN, Er:GaN, hBN), micro-LEDs, integrated nanophotonic, microresonators and frequency combs, Raman spectroscopy, 2D materials, silicon photonics, metamaterials, plasmonic nanostructures, and 3D capacitors.
