Amphibious Camera with Panoramic Vision

Inspired by the compound eyes of the fiddler crab in nature, we have developed a novel panoramic and amphibious imaging device by integrating a flat and graded-refractive-index micro-lens array with a comb-shape silicon photodiode array.

Thermally Protected Wearable Optoelectronics

Based on radiative cooling, flexible/Non-metallic porous polymer removes thermal adverse effects of wearable optoelectronics under direct sunlight, while allowing wireless power transfer and data communication.

Fish-eye Cameras

Inspired by the aquatic vision in nature, we have developed a novel miniaturized wide field-of-view imaging device by integrating a monocentric lens and a hemispherical silicon nanorod photodiode array.

Virus-based colorimetric sensors

M13 bacteriophage-based colorimetric sensors to facilitate the rapid detection for pathogens, toxins, or environmental changes at extremely low concentration levels

​Covert Polarization Display

Covert polarization display to break through the flexibility/scalability limitation by using ultrathin lossy nanocolumns deposited on a metal film with wide color selectivity.
