Associate Professor / UNIST


Ubiquitous Photonics (UP) Lab is dedicated to research on diverse photonic devices, especially waveguide-based devices. At present, we are focusing on plasmonic or photonic waveguide devices, which are targeted for photonic integrated circuits (ICs) or chemical/biological sensors. We design, simulate, fabricate, and characterize them. In addition, we are studying a few things of nanoplasmonics such as optical antennas and metal nano particles. We are looking for students who are eager to study these things. If you are interested in UP Lab, please feel free to contact Prof. Kwon.
