The Gholipour Group is based at the Nanoscale Optics Laboratory in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Alberta, Canada.
Our lab has broad research interests in nanotechnology in particular nanophotonics, reconfigurable optics and photonic integrated circuits as well as dielectric and plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces realized using predominantly chalcogenide and perovskite semiconductors for emerging telecommunication, sensing, energy, display and computing applications.
Our research follows an interdisciplinary approach to realize mass-manufacturable materials and devices that address grand engineering challenges through coupling fundamental physical insights with cutting edge computational design and simulation techniques. See more on our research interests>>
Group Leader and Lab Director, Professor Behrad Gholipour is a pioneer in the design and manufacturing of reconfigurable plasmonic and dielectric nanophotonic metamaterials and metasurfaces using phase change and perovskite materials as well as manufacturing, processing and use of multimaterial optical fibres for a variety of telecommunication and computing applications.
