Group summary

The Nano Opto-Electronics Laboratory (NOEL) at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (CUHKSZ) was established in June 2015 when Prof. Zhaoyu ZHANG moved from Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School to CUHKSZ. We are a group of people who are dedicated to the dream of improving the quality of lifes with our expertise in nano photonics. We built our labs from scatch, we create our culture from nothing, and we attract talented people from everywhere. Understanding that the impact our work may have is mainly from our persistence in the right way and the wisdom from the hardship, we commit to the dream and we try to deliver more!

Currently, our lab has capabilities of design, fabricating and testing for various optoelectronics devices. These include FDTD and FEM simulation, basic III/V fabrication (such as mask aligner, inductively coupled plasma etcher (ICP), oxidation furnaces, etc.), photoluminescence and electroluminescence testing systems with spectral range from visible to NIR, and with temperature ranging from liquid helium to room temperature, ultrafast optical measurement system with femtosecond laser and streak camera, ultrafast electrical measurement system with picosecond pulse, organic devices fabrication and testing tools (glovebox-thermal evaporation system, EQE measurement system).

And we are working mainly in the following 2 areas:
1. Ultrasmall semiconductor laser devices (Inorganic area);
2. Organic optoelectronic devices (Organic area);

With the "commit and deliver more" notion, our group members have been working so hard that their work has been published on various high impact journals such as Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Optica, etc.

But we know, this is just the starting of our journey...
