All-glass, large-diameter metalens working at visible wavelengths made with conventional computer chip manufacturing methods

November 23, 2019

Large metalens

Metalenses are flat lenses that are ultrathin and lightweight, and are typically realized by placing millions to billions of nano-structures on a surface. The large number of structures makes scalability in both size and production scale a major concern. In our recent work, we demonstrate mass-...

Laughing gas laser: Widely tunable compact terahertz gas lasers with nitrous oxide

November 15, 2019

Laughing gas laser

We recently demonstrated a molecular gas laser that emits at frequencies between 250 GHz up to almost 1 THz using nitrous oxide (commonly known as laughing gas) as the gain medium. This laser relies on the optical pumping of the gas by a quantum cascade laser and can be generalized to a large number...
