Research Abstract:

Our research interests are fabrication, characterization, and fundamental understanding of advanced nano/micro photonic devices with outstanding optical properties and advanced functionalities. My group focuses on silicon-chip-based, ultra-high-quality micro-resonators and their applications for sensing, lasing, nonlinear optics, environmental monitoring, and biomedical research. We demonstrated the first on-chip micro-resonator-based particle sensors that can achieve not only detection but also size measurement of single nanoparticles one by one. We plan to utilize the novel sensing technology to study molecules/cells and their dynamics.
