Summary: My current research interest is to enhance light-matter interactions in graphene and boost its nonlinearity by combining graphene with plasmonic nanostructures supporting Fano resonance, a kind of resonance with sharp spectral signatures and highly localized, intense near fields. Using both theoretical and experimental study, our ultimate goal is to design fast, cost-effective, and energy-efficient active optical elements based on graphene plasmonic-Fano hybrid systems, with exceptionally strong ultrafast nonlinearities for application to all-optical switching, which is anticipated to become a key technology to meet society’s request for future communication.
