We currently have openings for at least two graduate students and one postdoc. The potential research areas are: 1. Advanced optical trapping and manipulation techniques. 2.  Light-driven self-organization of nanoparticles (i.e., optical matter). 3. Synthesis of functional nanomaterials for nanophotonics, photochemistry, sensing,  and biomedicine applications. 4. Single-particle spectroscopy and microscopy. Please contact Dr. Yan if you are interested or need more information.
