Research Focus

The main focus of the Wu Lab is on the fabrication and optical study of nanostructures of different materials including semiconductors, metal, and dichalcogenides for applications in the fields of plasmonics and quantum information processing. In particular, the studies of classical and quantum coherent coupling across different material platform are of vast interest in the realization of novel optoelectronic devices, highly sensitive nano-sensors, and broadband detectors.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
