We are excited to let you know Prof. Lipson and her group have moved to Columbia University in New York. Please see our new group website here.



Nanophotonics can provide high bandwidth, high speed and ultra-small optoelectronic components. This technology has the potential to revolutionize telecommunications, computation and sensing.

We investigate the physics and applications of nanoscale photonic structures. In particular, we are interested in light confining structures that can slow down, trap, enhance and manipulate light. Photonic structures can enhance light-matter interactions by orders of magnitude.The applications of the devices that we design, fabricate and demonstrate are numerous: on-chip light modulation (optically and electro-optically) and detection, networks on-chip, nonlinear phenomena, multi-material devices and platforms, microfluidics, basic physics, etc.

Our group members come from a variety of disciplines such as Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, Physics, and Applied and Engineering Physics. Our expertise ranges from electromagnetism theory to materials and devices characterization and fabrication. The fabrication is done in the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility - one of the most advanced academic centers for nanofabrication.
