Collaborators

The lab is fortunate to work with some outstanding collaborators at the Beckman Laser Institute, University of California – Irvine, and with external institutions. As a part of the LAMMP program, the WiFI group collaborates a great deal with the DOSI research group and Virtual Photonics initiative. Additionally, there are several other collaborations that are key to research efforts listed below:
