Title: Shaping Light for Photonic Integration, Sustainable Energy, Sensing, and Beyond
Abstract: The study of light interaction with solid-state structures at a nanoscale provides unprecedented functionalities. In this talk, I will discuss several topics that engage the control of light at a small scale, both classically and quantum mechanically. Specific topics include: gain-loss modulated parity-time symmetric nonreciprocal isolator; a broadband hiding effect using topological nodes; passive radiative cooling/heating textiles; and the development of III-nitride quantum cascade devices. These topics highlight several novel capabilities of nanophotonic structures for applications in photonic integration, thermal control, infrared sensing, and beyond.
