Research Summary

Our group is focused on nanoscale engineering of the efficiency and direction of light absorption and light emission in photonic devices which employ organic polymeric semiconductor materials and plasmonic nanostructures. Primary research areas include:

  1. Nanophotonics
  2. Optical and plasmonic nanoantennas coupled to semiconductor materials
  3. Organic (conjugated) polymer nanostructures
  4. Surface-plasmon-enhanced organic opto-electronic devices
  5. Nanoscale lasers and surface plasmon amplification by stimulated emission of radiation
