(Note: we don’t have openings for graduate students at this time.)
Our past and recent work tackled some highly challenging and important problems in silicon photonics and photonic crystals. More exciting opportunities and challenges are ahead. If you would like to make a contribution, please feel free to contact me. For theoretical work, strong math and programming skills are needed. For experimental work, strong micro/nano-fabrication or characterization skills are needed. We have access to excellent fabrication facilities (see links below), and have our own facilities for simulation/computation and device characterization.
