Welcome to the Energy Photonics Group. Our research is focused on understanding and manipulating the absorption and emission of thermal light a.k.a. infrared thermal radiation. We pursue both theoretical and experimental approaches to study the interaction of thermal radiation with nanoscale materials. Such novel materials may lead to technological breakthroughs in energy harvesting and thermal management.
