"Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself its own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it." - Niels Bohr

Welcome to Lan laboratory. We believe massless photons are extremely critical information carriers with the ultimate speed. We thus strive to bring optical solutions to real-world applications for the dream of light-enabled internet of things. Our multidisciplinary research spans a broad range of but not limited to topics as the following.


  • Augmented reality, virtual reality, and 3D displays (1 paper)
  • Plasmoelectronics with subwavelength plasmonic structures (3 papers)
  • Two-dimensional materials physics and devices (4 papers)
  • Nonlinear light-matter interactions in engineered nanomaterials (4 papers)
  • Chiral quantum emitters and metamaterials (4 papers)


  • Fiber-based optical communication systems (2 papers)
  • Integrated photonics, optomechanics, and mass sensing (2 papers)
  • Dental diagnosis using optical coherence tomography (6 papers)
