Research Information:

My research expertise is in the related fields of photonics, nonlinear optics, quantum optics, and nanophotonics.  In brief summary, photonics is the study of the use of light for applications of importance to society, nonlinear optics stresses how one beam of light can modify the properties of another beam, quantum optics stresses those aspects of light that require a quantum mechanical description, and nanophotonics stresses the interaction of light with structures of sub-wavelength dimensions.
