We focus our research on design and fabrication of micro-optical and nano-optical devices that combine MEMS, photonic crystals, integrated optics, and free-space optics. By utilizing the resolving and diffractive properties of MEMS arrays, we create efficient and reliable systems for fiber-optics, free-space communication, displays, adaptive optics, spectroscopy, and instrumentation for biological studies.
