This laboratory focuses of engineering light-matter interaction for manufacturing applications and manufacturing devices for light-matter interaction. Much of this work occurs using lasers in either a processing or metrology capability and the laboratory maintains several laser systems and optics capabilities. This enables processing materials across different length scales including additive manufacturing and infrared/optical metasurfaces. Current research projects include Digital Glass Forming (3D printing glass), instrumentation for in-situ inspection of metal additive manufacturing, ultrafast laser texturing, scalable metasurface fabrication using self-assembled microspheres, metasurface integrated uncooled microbolometers, and thermoelectric coupled nanoscale antennas.
