Low energy opto-electronics
The internet relies on opto-electronic devices to produce, route, and detect light. But the majority of opto-electronic devices today rely on weak interactions between light and matter, and therefore consume high powers. Our group studies strong interactions between light and matter at the nanoscale. In this regime interactions between single emitters and single photons can become extremely strong, enabing a new class of opto-electronic devices that operate at the lowest fundamental energy limit.
