Gaurav Bahl’s group explores nonreciprocal and topological phenomena in photonic, acoustic, and microwave systems. Research emphasis is on ultrahigh-Q optomechanical systems and on mechanisms by which chiral transport of photons and phonons can be produced.
Opto-mechanics, including topological protection, some pair generation
nanophotonics, laser cooling of solids, microresonators
Defects may help scientists understand the exotic physics of topology
