Welcome to the Shen group

Our group explores novel quantum and classical phenomena of light, and its interactions with engineered materials at nano-scales.

Specific research topics:
  • New quantum photonic sources (two-photon lasers) to overcome diffraction limit and enable super-resolution for optical imaging;
  • Liquefying photons: Engineering quantum fluid of light;
  • Photonic molecules and dynamics in cavity QED;
  • Engineered optical materials (metamaterials) ;
  • Quantum photonic materials exhibiting photonic and electronic entanglement;
  • Quantum optical effects in human brain and visual systems ;
