The Bio-inspired Sensors and Optoelectronics Lab (BISOL) has a general goal of producing novel photonics and optoelectronic devices inspired by nature. Current research is focused on infrared detectors and vision systems, nano-scale lasers, visible to terahertz plasmonics, and novel nano-processing. We explore physics of nano-scale dimensions to realize novel devices that could revolutionize many medical, commercial, and security applications.
