Optical Engineering with Atomically Thin Semiconductors

Atomically thin semiconductors are an incredible platform for engineering light/matter interaction in nanoscale systems. 2D materials exhibit exceptionally strong optical response that can be completely reconfigured by electronic, magnetic, or optical control. Furthermore, 2D materials can be integrated with funcitonal platforms, such as integrated photonics, metasurfaces, and quantum systems, to generate hybrid functionionality. We are exploring novel applications of 2D materials in integrated photonics, quantum optics, and quantum control. We are also exploring correlated electron physics in 2D materials and exotic technologies that can leverage these states.
