We perform research in two main areas
Biomedical and Biophotonic Devices and Photonics and Optoelectronic Materials and Devices.
The former includes microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip devices, in-vitro diagnostic and point-of-care devices, and novel devices for single cell analysis and drug discovery. The latter is primarily focused on devices and novel physical mechanisms in condensed matter and low dimensional materials that can achieve ultrasensitive light detection with single-photon sensitivity. Applications include LiDAR, imaging, night vision, medical and bioimaging, and quantum communication, computing, and sensing.
