Research Interests

Photonic nanostructures and topological wave engineering
Photonic crystals are artificial optical materials possessing a wavelength-scale periodic structure in refractive index. Novel optical functionalities and unique optical phenomena can be realized using photonic crystals. Our research focuses on the control of light and light-matter interactions by using photonic nanostructures including photonic crystals, especially, aiming at the development of novel light-emitting devices and quantum optical devices. We are also interested in the generation of unconventional optical beams, such as optical vortexes and Poincare beams, utilizing photonic nanostructures and in their applications. Moreover, we are exploring topological wave engineering aiming at realizing novel control of light, sound, and elastic waves using the concept of topology. We expect the unique features will lead breakthroughs of the device technologies in various fields.
