About the Group

The recent emergence of low dimensional quantum materials provides an excellent platform to investigate various elementary excitations for next-generation devices. In some materials, the Coulombic attraction between 2D electrons and holes bind to form hydrogen-like quasiparticles known as excitons even at room temperature. The Excitonics and Photonics (ExP) lab focuses on understanding and manipulating exciton dynamics (including energy transport) in low dimensional materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), organic semiconductors and the hybrid interfaces for applications in on-chip data communication and processing, quantum metrology and quantum information science and engineering. The lab engages in a collaborative, multi and inter disciplinary research to bridge knowledge and cutting-edge approaches from the fields of quantum optics, nanophotonics, excitonics and material science. More information on current and past research is available under various tabs.
