NanoExcitonic Device Technology

Light has played a critical role throughout history as a medium for conveying information. In particular, producing light and controlling it has been a central interest in modern information technology. An exciton, a bound state of an electron and a hole, can be formed in semiconductors and leads to efficient light emission or absorption. Thus, properly understanding and controlling excitons is a crucial aspect of creating high-performance optoelectronic devices.

In our lab, we utilize the cutting-edge nanotechnology to fabricate high-performance nanoscale electronic and optoelectronic devices that open the door to the NEXT generation of information technology, which will revolutionize our lives in the near future. Our projects span a broad range from fundamental physics to applied science of nanoelectronics and excitonic devices. We use light as a mean to understand the physics of different materials, enabling us to design novel devices with high performance and advanced optical properties.

Please look through our website to get a complete idea of our research, facilities and members, and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to contacts from students passionate to become future leaders in the society.
