Research interests

Theory, manufacturing and application of photonic crystals Our primary objective is to speed up the maturation of microstructured fiber and photonic crystal fiber technologies and their penetration into the industrial sector. Research at the Engineering Physics Department is broadened by our comprehensive research program in Photonic Band Gap materials, nanostructured materials and devices with applications in telecommunications, mid-infrared and terahertz optics, sensing, medicine and intelligent textiles. Experimentally we focus on preform fabrication and fiber drawing of polymer and soft-glass microstructured fibers for biomedical, sensing, intelligent textile, mid-infrared and terahertz applications. We also pursue fabrication of planar and two dimensional photonic crystal waveguides and nanophotonic devices (plasmonics) for sensing applications. Theoretically our group pursues an effort in design of novel highly integrated photonic crystal components based on fibers and planar waveguides, as well as modeling the microstructured fiber fabrication process including fluid dynamics of fiber drawing, heat transfer in high power fiber links, and influence of imperfections on fiber and planar device performance.
