Dr. Wan Kuang joined the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boise State University in September 2005 after receiving his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering (Electrophysics) at University of Southern California (USC).;
Dr. Kuang’s current research interests are focused in the areas of nano-scale photonic devices, photonic bandgap material, and electrodynamic numerical simulations. The mission of nanophotonics research is to scale optical devices and components to their ultimate size limits. This usually involves designing near-field optical interactions that guide electromagnetic energy on a scale well below the diffraction limit. The group is currently involved in understanding the electro-optic properties of surface plasmon nanostructures using several numerical and experimental methods. The nanophotonics group also collaborates closely with material scientists (Dr. Knowlton, Hughes, Yurke) in exploring new sub-10 nm fabrication technique using single strand DNA as assembly scaffold.

Dr. Wan Kuang is a member of SPIE and OSA (Optical Society of America).
