Research Statement

We study light manipulation and light-matter interaction at micro- and nano-scales, through physics exploration and nano-fabrication, for synthesizing emergent optical states and making new photonic devices. Our research seeks new insights in photonics to address emerging technology challenges from manipulation of single photons to large-scale integration.

Post-Doctoral Research Opportunities

Our group has an opening for postdoctoral researcher with background in photonics at large, and ideally but not required with micro- and nano-fabrication experiences. Please contact Prof. Fang (kfang3@illinois.edu) for more details.

Graduate Research Opportunities

We welcome highly motivated students to join our group. Our research intersects with several fields of science and engineering including nanophotonics, NEMS, and quantum optics, and offers rich opportunities for graduate researchers to be trained in device physics, fabrication, and testing. Incoming or interested students should contact Prof. Fang (kfang3@illinois.edu) with a complete CV, accompanied by a short paragraph highlighting relevant practical experience and coursework.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

We welcome undergraduate students interested in photonics to gain research experience in our group. Students should have preliminary course study in electromagnetism, photonics, etc.
