Welcome to the Yan Research Group website!

The group is led by Zijie Yan in the Department of Applied Physical Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our research 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 looking for new postdoctoral researchers and graduate students, please contact Dr. Yan if you are interested in joining our group.
