Kai Shum Group

Photonics Laboratory

Photonics Laboratory at Brooklyn College is located in Room 149 NE of the Ingersoll building. Currently, it is conducting cutting-edge research led by principal investigator, Prof. Kai Shum, in the field of photonics, emphasizing on light-matter interactions in natural and synthesized semiconductor materials and their nanostructures. The research laboratory was initially founded under the CUNY’s photonics initiative program in 2006. About 1400 ft2 laboratory space was renovated with 120 ft2 standard optical benches, on which state-of-the-art optical spectroscopic apparatuses are equipped (see partial list below). The laboratory provides researchers and students with advanced equipment for experimental research works.
