Congratulations to Ali on his new job at ASML as an optical design engineer!

Job: Postdoctoral Research Scholars in Optics and Optoelectronics

Job Description Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in the Nanoscale Optoelectronics Lab (http://live-yao-group.pantheonsite.io/) at Arizona State University. The successful candidates will work on metasurface-based optoelectronic device design, fabrication, system integration and applications. The work involves planning research activities, investigating and implementing device fabrication/system integration, documenting relevant results in appropriate forms, writing project reports and…

Jing will be presenting our work on Chip Integrated Plasmonic Flat Optics for Mid-infrared Polarization Detection at 2018 MRS Spring


Our paper on infrared molecular sensing has been published in ACS Nano!

http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsnano.7b02687 We report an infrared plasmonic nanosensor for label-free, sensitive, specific, and quantitative identification of nanometer-sized molecules. The device design is based on vertically coupled complementary antennas (VCCAs) with densely patterned hot-spots.  We demonstrate experimentally that a monolayer of octadecanethiol (ODT) molecules (thickness 2.5 nm) leads to significant antenna resonance wavelength shift over 136 nm…
