The Vuckovic group investigates optics and light manipulation at the nanoscale. Harnessing developments in the semiconductor industry, we engineer platforms that both probe fundamental science and hold promise for future information technologies. Of paramount interest is studying solid-state quantum emitters, such as quantum dots and defect centers in diamond, and their interactions with light. Furthermore, we are transforming conventional nanophotonics with the concept of inverse design, where we design arbitrary optical devices from scratch using computer algorithms with little to no human input. Through these efforts we aim to enable a wide variety of technologies ranging from silicon photonics to quantum computing.
