Power Photonics & Applications

The Power Photonics & Applications group, led by Dr Yoonchan Jeong, explores the outer reaches of photonics science and technology, especially, in high-power and high-energy regimes. Our research focuses on developing innovative lasers and photonic systems and providing novel and powerful solutions to related applications. 

Research interests

Our main research interests include

  • generation of high-power / high-energy photons
  • photon-photon / photon-electron / photon-phonon energy conversions
  • photon-molecule interactions
  • and many interesting related applications, such as lidar, laser sonar, remote sensing, space optical communication, display, nano-biomedical applications, etc.

The group is also collaborating in aesthetical applications of photonics technologies into art, e.g. technology textiles.
