Our research aim is to propose, develop, and demonstrate novel and useful biophotonic, nanophotonic and optoelectronic devices and interfaces for the applications to energy, medicine, and environment. To meet this objective we explore, engineer and exploit interesting characteristics and phenomena of nanomaterials and biomaterials, and use them in novel device and interface architectures. Our research integrates fundamental scientific knowledge with forward-looking engineering approaches, and it spans conception, modeling, material preparation, device fabrication, characterization, and their system-level applications.
