Our group, at the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, studies photonics in complex systems through a combination of experiments, numerical simulations, and analytical methods. We actively explore new paradigms for controlling light, overcoming and harnessing light scattering, retrieving information from photons, doing computations with light, and beyond. Our interests lie both in fundamental questions and in the many applications of optics and photonics such as imaging, sensing, information processing, communications, and energy.
Some of our current and recent topics of interest:
- Wave propagation in disordered media and multi-mode fibers
- Imaging in scattering media
- Computational electromagnetics
- Numerical optimizations, inverse design, and robust design
- Nanophotonic light trapping and bound states in the continuum
- Non-hermitian photonics: engineering gain, absorption, and radiation
- Topological photonics
- Plasmonics and sub-wavelength optics
- Optical computing
