Our nanophotonics research aims to develop advanced optical materials and nanotechnology to provide highly efficient light manipulation for both fundamental study of light-matter interactions at a nanoscale and a breadth of applications. We have world-leading expertise in the use of structured light as an independent information carrier to convey more optical information, with significant impact on classic and quantum photonic chips, optical communication and displays, optical/fibre imaging, and optical sensors.
