    Our lab is devoted to explore the complex interactions between photons and biological tissues, including the linear/nonlinear reflection, absorption, and scattering etc. The basic study can be extended to biomedical applications such as imaging, spectroscopy, and diagnostics based on these optical interactions. There currently four major topics:
    1. Whole-brain functional imaging in drosophila
    2. Superresolution imaging based on nonlinear plasmonics
    3. Tunable ultrafast laser development
    4. Chiral molecule probe with nonlinear optical interactions
