Laboratory for Solar and Quantum Technology

1201G Energy Research Building (IREAP)

Our group focuses on engineering the fundamental interaction between light and matter and applying this understanding to optical systems, control of quantum forces, and for energy harvesting and photovoltaic applications. These studies involve novel photonic and plasmonic structures for light trapping, energy collection and extraction, communications, and sensors and merges physics and engineering to accomplish these goals.
