  • 08/16/10 Metamaterial Silk Composites at Terahertz Frequencies
  • 05/19/10 A dual band terahertz metamaterial absorber
  • 10/02/09 Reconfigurable Terahertz Metamaterials
  • 04/24/09 Large-area metamaterials on thin membranes for multilayer and curved applications at terahertz and higher frequencies
  • 12/23/08 Comparison of birefringent electric split-ring resonator and meanderline structures as quarter-wave plates at terahertz frequencies
  • 12/19/08 Highly flexible wide angle of incidence terahertz metamaterial absorber: Design, fabrication, and characterization
  • 11/13/08 Terahertz metamaterials on free-standing highly-flexible polyimide substrates

My main research interest is using time-resolved and time-integrated optical spectroscopic techniques to interrogate the fundamental and applied properties of materials. My research spans from the far-infrared through the visible and includes materials ranging from correlated electron materials to metamaterials.
