PROFESSIONAL INTERESTS
My research is in the areas of nano-photonics and light-matter interaction. I am interested in investigating the design and integration of nanophotonic building blocks with practical devices, the role of surface area in nanoscale systems, the size-dependent infiltration of nanoscale molecules into nanoscale voids, and the interaction of electric fields and high energy radiation with nanoscale materials. In particular, my group has targeted studies related to four broad application areas: enhanced sensitivity of biomolecule detection, enhanced speed of optical signal modulation, enhanced emission from light-emitting devices, and high energy radiation-induced oxidation. In the area of biosensing, we are developing porous silicon waveguides and diffraction gratings, silicon photonic crystals with multi-hole defects, and patterned nanoporous gold SERS substrates for the detection of DNA, toxins, and other small molecules. In the area of optical signal modulation, we are exploring hybrid silicon-vanadium dioxide ring resonators as a new platform for achieving ultrafast optical switching and routing. In the area of light-emitting diodes, we are investigating the use of ultra-small cadmium selenide nanocrystals for white-light devices. In the area of radiation-induced oxidation, we are studying the mechanism and applications of room temperature, ultrathin oxide growth on silicon-based structures by x-ray and gamma irradiation. My principal educational goals are to guide the professional development of members of my research group and to stimulate an interest in science through teaching and community outreach programs.
