Welcome to the Yan Research Group website!

The group is led by Dr. Zijie Yan in the Department of Applied Physical Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Our major goal is to transcend the boundary between photonics and materials science by developing new techniques to study light-matter interactions at the nanometer scale. We are also interested in the design and synthesis of nanostructured materials with desired chemical, photonic, and biological properties for energy and health applications.
