Efficient generation, amplification, and detection of electromagnetic waves in t he range from ultraviolet to millimeters (0.2-2000 microns) and applications
Professor Ding's research utilizes novel nanostructures including quantum wells, self-assembled quantum wires and quantum-well dots, as well as nonlinear opt ical materials. He has also been working on the design, growth, fabrication, and testing of nanodevices based on novel structures. These are high-power semicond uctor lasers and amplifiers, blue-light converters, ultrabroad-bandwidth modulat ors, ultrastable mid-IR sources, frequency shifters, and power limiters with dramatically improved performance.These devices can be eventually used to implement various systems for target recognition as well as tracking and pointing. They also have applications in pollution monitoring, identifying toxic chemicals, remote sensing, remote biological agent detection, mine detection, molecular spectroscopy, bio-medical imaging, security screening, satellite communication, protection of optical sensors, and optical communication.
