Prof. Xiaolong Hu
We explore light-matter interactions at nanoscale. In particular, we study the phenomena and principles regarding how light/photons interact with dielectric materials, semiconductors, metals, and superconductors that are designed and made into nanostructures by cutting-edge nanofabrication technologies. We furthermore develop novel optoelectronic devices for information processing, storage, and delivery that directly enable applications in sensing, computation, microscopy, communication, and health care. Our research combines electrical engineering, optical engineering, material sciences, and physics, and helps push forward the boundaries of modern optoelectronics.

Congratulations to Liang for his successful thesis defense
The band gap of silicon is 1.12 eV. Therefore, silicon is transparent to light in the 1310 nm and 1550 nm telecom bands. Although silicon photodetectors are widely used in laboratories and various applications, they generally cannot detect light in the 1310 nm and 1550 nm telecom bands.Our group recently published a paper, entitled "Infrared photoconductor based on surface-state absorption in s...
