 K. Jain is a physical chemist working in the area of nanoscale light–matter interactions. He is particularly interested in the design of quantum-dot-based single-photon sources, single-nanoparticle-level spectroscopy for the characterization of nanoscale light emitters, plasmonic control of light absorption and emission, and the synthesis of inorganic nanostructures that host functional defects or non-natural crystallographic phases.
