Quantum & Nanobio Photonics Laboratory at KAIST supports convergence and integrated science research in the field of quantum photonics and nanobio photonics by fabrication and optical analysis of nanostructures from solid state semiconductors and metallic structures. The core technology employed in this laboratory is to fabricate quantum dot structures with three-dimensional quantum confinement by using specially designed semiconductor nanostructures and control the light produced from these quantum dots that have discrete energy levels and unique properties, which are investigated thoroughly by optical analysis. Furthermore, various nanostructure fabrication and analysis techniques are applied in sensing, imaging and manipulating biological samples with high resolution. This laboratory focuses on synergetic research and mutual integration of nanophotonics and nanobio optics technologies in order to overcome the limitations of currently existing optical technology and to develop novel functionalized imaging technics and photonics devices.
