Micro- and nano-optomechanical systems

Ongoing
Light can interact with mechanical systems in interesting and useful ways, not only probing the mechanical motion with spectacular sensitivity, but also driving

Nanostructures for Energy Conversion

Completed
Electrochemical systems containing nanostructured materials are increasingly being incorporated into devices for efficiently harvesting, storing, and converting

Photon Drag in Metal Films

Ongoing
We explore the physics of the transfer of photon momentum to free electrons in thin metal films, including unexpected phenomena such as the counterintuitve sign

Three-Dimensional Nanometer Metrology

Ongoing
We use physics theories to understand and simulate the interaction of electrons, light, and mechanical probes with nanometer-scale structures, devices and
