The Molecular Nanophotonics Group

We investigate and experimentally control the light-matter interaction at the nanoscale by leveraging advancements in photonics and quantum optics. Our main objective is to conceive new optical measurement tools and experiments with ever-increasing sensitivity and resolution to address problems in chemistry, materials science, and quantum science. Many condensed-phase nano-materials exhibit considerable structural complexity and rich multi-timescale dynamics that can both be measured and increasingly tuned with light. Each material system poses a different set of questions, yet we believe the answers can be found with our experimental approaches rooted in spectroscopy, nanophotonics, and quantum optics.

We extend our gratitude for the support provided by the following agencies and foundations.
