The Arnold Group

We focus on materials processing and fabrication, with applications in energy, optoelelectronics, sensing and nanotechnology.

Our group strives to develop a deeper understanding of fundamental materials and optical physics in order to have a direct impact on applications at the frontiers of technology. Using a combination of approaches, including laser-based, solution-based, and mechanical methods, we develop novel ways to enhance structures and properties and optimize material performance. Our current research targets nanofabrication, optofluidics, energy conversion and storage, laser-induced forward transfer, and materials for mid-infrared photonics.
