Welcome to the Lan research group at Texas A&M University. We believe massless photons are extremely critical information carriers to connect and manage a network of physical devices for an optical internet of things (IoT). We thus strive to bring photonic solutions to address challenges in energy, manufacturing, health science, information technology, and national security.
