Welcome to the Advanced Photonic Devices Lab!
Our focus is on creating cutting-edge quantum-limit devices, ultra-low-loss structures, and efficient systems for applications in quantum information science (QIS).
To achieve these goals, we employ a set of tools and a robust design framework to enhance the photonic and electronic properties of semiconductors and solid-state devices.
We are dedicated to pioneering new materials and devices for quantum photonic components, particularly those with high refractive indices. This innovation promises to significantly reduce the footprint of photonic circuits while introducing novel functionalities. Additionally, we are passionate about exploring high-index photonic systems and the potential of high-index material nanostructures in the realm of QIS.
In essence, our work will serve as a key piece in the photonic QIS puzzle, strengthening the quantum photonic toolkit and uncovering fresh insights and opportunities in high-index photonics. Most importantly, however, the APD lab will equip students and researchers for the rapidly growing semiconductor industry and the burgeoning QIS field.
