Awards & Recognition
- Fellow (International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), 2015)
- Fellow (American Physical Society, 2012)
- NSF CAREER Award (National Science Foundation, 2006)
- In collaboration with Sheffield University researchers, we demonstrated active mode locking of external cavity quantum cascade lasers. This is also the first demonstration of room temperature mode locking in any kind of QCLs
- Our prediction of untra-strong nonlinearity of graphene in a quantizing magnetic field has been validated in collaboration with Dresden University researchers
- In the paper submitted to PRL we predicted the existence of electromagnetic modes with highly unusual properties in a special class of topological materials: Weyl semimetals
