Our group focuses on the physics and engineering of light on a mesoscopic-scale ranging from tens of microns down to tens of nanometers. In this regime, myriads of fascinating optical phenomena can be explored both theoretically and experimentally. Current research topics include:

Metamaterials - Pursuing novel artificial functionalities at optical frequency that are achievable only with metamaterials with the help of nano/micro-scale fabrication

Optomechanics - Radiation-pressure-induced regenerative mechanical amplification or cooling of an optomechanical micro- or nanoresonators and the related physical phenomena
