Bio/Nano Photonics Cluster adds researcher with laser expertise

10_Lin_Yuankun_physics_engineering.jpgYuankun Lin will be a member of the Bio/Nano Photonics Cluster, a multidisciplinary collaboration of professors. The group explores how light can be used in extremely small dimensions to develop new materials and devices with applications in medicine, telecommunications, energy and numerous other fields.

Lin, who joins UNT this fall, will have a joint appointment in physics and electrical engineering as an associate professor.

Lin comes from the University of Texas Pan American, where he is an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Geology. His research interests, which are supported by some $4 million from the National Science Foundation, include photonics, laser optics, laser-matter interaction, fiber optics, sensors and photonic band gap materials.

Lin has extensive expertise in diffractive optical elements and sophisticated laser techniques. This combination has allowed him to develop structural components for state-of-the-art photonic devices from inexpensive materials, making the devices particularly cost effective.

Potential applications of photonics are virtually limitless, and the technology is currently used in barcode scanners, laser eye surgery and CD, DVD and Blu-ray devices.
