Welcome to the Nanophotonics, Sensors and Devices Laboratory

The Sirbuly research group is interested in exploiting the unique optical, mechanical and electrical properties of nanoscale materials to develop novel integrated systems for various applications including sensing, biodiagnostics, energy conversion, and spectroscopy. To undertake this objective we rely on a highly interdisciplinary team that works at the interface of materials science and engineering as well as chemistry and biology. We are actively involved in all aspects of the manufacturing process of new devices and materials including synthesis, fabrication/integration and characterization. Currently we have projects involving photonic waveguides, nanostructured piezoelectrics and plasmonic nanomaterials.

*** We are always looking for talented and motivated students with strong backgrounds in Chemistry, Materials Science, and Engineering! ***
