We are interested in building photonic systems with yet-to-be conceived functionalities. To realize the goal, our work spans across all levels of the system stack: from fundamental device-level research with nanofabrication as well as quantum and nonlinear optics, all the way to creating the most advanced hardware demonstrations with photonic inverse design.
