Venue: B707, New Main Building, Xueyuan Road Campus


Mid-infrared (MIR) and Terahertz (THz) spectral regions, hereafter defined as the ~3 – 300 μm wavelength range, host particular scientific and technological interests. Many molecules have strong and rich spectral fingerprints in this MIR region, therefore, MIR photonic and nanophotonic devices are potentially very promising for a breath of applications such as environmental and bio-chemical sensing, industrial control, and medicine, etc. THz region has wide applications in free space communication, imaging and spectroscopy. However, MIR and THz regions remain a far from mature region, with a dearth in both passive and active components. This talk will cover the recent developments in the speaker’s research group on MIR photodetectors based on 2D materials and nanoparticles with high performance and multifunctionalities, and electrically pumped THz topological quantum cascade laser with topological robustness, polarization control, and compact footprint.
