Optics & Photonics Laboratory
University of Michigan
Optics and photonics faculty and students are exploring biophotonics, photonic MEMS, optoelectronics in quantum structures, nanophotonics, ultrafast optics, quantum optics, and fiber and integrated photonics and lasers.
What We Do
Research ranges from fundamental science to emerging applications and devices, including quantum computing, on-chip micron-scaled resonators, microsensors, metamaterials, in vivo biological imaging and sensing, and biophysical studies of biomolecular structure.
