In the Optical Spintronics and Sensing Lab we study defects in crystals. Defects have historically played an essential role in classical electronic/optical devices. Now new, nanoscale, devices are being developed based on the quantum properties of defects. We are occupied with the following questions:

  • What are the fundamental properties of a known defect state? Alternatively, by measuring the properties of an unknown state, can we identify it?
  • How can the quantum properties of a defect be engineered and controlled?
  • What new technologies can quantum properties of defects enable?
  • What new capabilities can be realized through solid-state device integration of defects?

Undergraduate Research

There are often open graduate and undergraduate research positions in the group. Interested students should contact
Kai-Mei directly.

Unfortunately, the group does not fund international undergraduate students seeking summer research experiences. Self-funded students are welcome to contact
