OUR GOALS  FOR THIS PROGRAM: Introduce and develop revolutionary concepts to model, design, analyze, fabricate and  characterize ultralow-power, ultrafast, high-density, compact, scalable optoelectronic nanodevices and dense arrays of them, envisioning the next generation of integrated nanophotonic systems Realize nanophotonic devices enabling operations in the femtosecond, nanometer and  attojoule ranges, all within a CMOS-compatible, directly scalable, room-temperature  environment at telecommunication wavelengths
TECHNICAL APPROACH: Hybrid material platform supporting novel phenomena that may significantly push the limits             of integration and speed, including quantum effects, 2D materials, metamaterials, heavily-doped             semiconductors, and plasmonic materials Novel theoretical tools, including analytical and numerical methods, as well as fundamental             bounds on efficiency and speed, capturing the involved complex multiphysics problems,             and including and integrating plasmonic, electronic, nonlinear and quantum effects Nanofabrication techniques to realize CMOS-compatible, cost-effective, ultralow power,             and ultrafast nanodevices on hybrid substrates Fundamental physics advances  in quantum optics, plasmonics, strong light-matter interactions New nanophotonics concepts, applying metatronics, epsilon-near-zero, hyperbolic metasurfaces,             and meta-electronics
