Reststrahlen Optics Our group is exploring how we can engineer optical materials, sources, and detectors for the far-infrared; a regime that is dominated by absorption due to optical phonons in polar crystals. In many respects, this portion of the spectrum is the Final Optical Frontier.

Welcome to the Mid-infrared & THz Photonics Group

The Mid-infrared and THz Photonics group in the Department of Electrical Engineering focuses on optical materials and devices that emit, detect, and control low-energy photons.  Our interests include metamaterials, intersubband devices, localized and propagating surface polaritons, intersubband and interband lasers, and more.  We are always looking for good graduate students and post-docs.
