The Mid-Infrared Photonics group is a research group affiliated with the University of Massachusetts Lowell Photonics Center.  Our group studies mid-infrared (mid-IR) emitters, detectors, and photonic devices for applications in Defense and Security, Sensing, and Communications.

Please use this website to learn more about our lab and our research.  If you have any questions about the group, the Photonics Center, or the UMass Lowell Department of Physics and Applied Physics, feel free to get in touch!
