Research Interests

Our group investigates electromagnetic wave phenomena in periodic and disordered media and their applications in photonics. We use microwave, infrared and optical measurements to study transport in complex, inhomogeneous materials and structures. Our research includes microwave properties of magnetic photonic crystals and their applications in microwave engineering, propagation and localization of microwaves in random cavities and waveguides, fabrication and optical properties of photonic band gap materials for photonics applications, photon localization and lasing in disordered microstructures.
