Things that we are excited about

Our Research

Welcome to the WAVE Lab! We aim to bring fiber optics and photonics techniques to inter-disciplinary areas.

Making a Difference

At our lab, we envision a world transformed by the magic of fiber optics. We see light not just as a passive carrier of information, but as a powerful tool for progress, weaving a brighter future for technology, society, and education.

We enjoy offering fiber optic experiences to students of different level – from K12 to college to graduate school. We hope they will be amazed by how fiber optics can transform our society.

Refracting the light of curiosity into a spectrum of possibility.

Our goal is to bring fiber optics and photonics to interdisciplinary areas. Devoted to projects that we are excited about to make a difference to the society.

Imagine using light to solve food scarcity issue, to secure communications, to enable anywhere anytime connection between people, and to provide safe and human friendly robotic technology.
