Research Interests

Prof. Hoang research interests span the broad areas of materials science and nanophotonics. In the area of materials science he is interested in using linear and non-linear optical spectroscopies to study opto-electronic properties of novel materials and structures at the nanoscale, including two dimensional dichalcogenides, semiconductor nanowires and quantum dots. In the areas of nanophotonics , including plasmonics, he is interested in combining the miniaturized dimensions of novel materials with the high speed data rates and enhanced bandwidths achieved by photonic and plasmonic devices. These research fields hold great promises towards the practical implementation of next generation of optoelectronic devices such as high efficiency solar cells and photodetectors, ultra-broadband optical communications, optical processing and sensing.
