Prof. Stephen Chou's co-authored a paper with EE Grad Student Wei Ding, which the most downloaded Optics Express paper three months in a row!
Princeton researchers, led by Prof. Stephen Chou, have found a simple and economical way to nearly triple the efficiency of organic solar cells.
EE Graduate Student Eric Mills is one of the recipients of the 2012 National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG). The NDSEG Fellowship provides funding for 3 years. Eric is advised by Prof. Stephen Chou. The Department of Defense (DoD) offers these fellowships to individuals who have demonstrated the ability and special aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering.
We are pleased to announce that the Optical Society (OSA) Board of Directors has elected Prof. Stephen Chou as a Fellow of the Society for “fundamental contributions to nanophotonic device patterning and engineering.”. OSA will formally recognize the 2011 fellows at an upcoming OSA conference.
Prof. Stephen Chou co-authored a paper which is now one of the most downloaded papers of all 18 Optical Society (OSA) journals. OSA focuses on the study of light - optics and photonics and brings together scientists, engineers, educators and business leaders of this field. The paper is entitled "Three-dimensional cavity nanoantenna coupled plasmonic nanodots for ultrahigh and uniform surface-enhanced Raman scattering over large area" and can be found here.
An ultrasensitive sensor has been invented by Prof. Chou and his group of researchers. The sensor, which relies on a completely new architecture and fabrication technology, gathers and amplifies Raman signals. These are wavelengths of light that can be used to identify substances.

Prof. Stephen Chou has been selected to be an Einstein Professor of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Einstein Professorships are awarded each year to 20 international scientists at the forefront of their field for conducting lecture-tours in China. The goal of this professorship is to train young emerging scientists in China and increase cooperation between CAS scientists and Einstein Professors.
