Group paintball

There's nothing quite like sharing high-speed projectiles with your fellow lab members to really bring a group together.  The Caltech Nanofab Group had such a great time at paintball this past weekend that Kate even suggested we make it a monthly event!  As fun as that sounds, there's concern this is merely a poorly masked ploy to "manage" anyone who owes her travel receipts.

Check out some of the pictures!

Max and d2 talking smack before the battle


Jeff, we're still in the parking lot. You can't shoot people yet.


Nils: once UDT, always UDT


"I look like a plumber" -Max


Sameer: Blackwater contractor


We do not negotiate with terrorists


Preparing for battle


Kate, before


Kate, after




Max having now learned the difference between cabbage and lettuce


William - is that mustard or did you take a bad shot to the chest?

Higher-Order Defect-Mode Laser

A new class of photonic crystal cavities in optically thick slabs [2]


Creating high-Q cavities in the absence of photonic bandgap [1]


Aditya manage to not only convince, but actually impress a panel of hardened professors with his micro/nanofabricated technology for biological investiations.  Let the fun continue!

Design, fabrication, and characterization of a proof-of-concept device to control the Vernier effect [1].

Commencement 2012

Graduation breakfast in Sloan Annex at 8:00am. Please join us for breakfast, pictures and well wishes for our graduates. Axel sighting is a possibility!




Erika Garcia-M.S.

Samson Chen-B.S.

The Caltech Nanofabrication Group woud like to congratulate Jingqing Huang on her successful thesis defense!

Jingqing's research explored the ultimate scaling limits of semiconductor lasers, utilizing novel structures and developing ultra-high precision fabrication techniques to combat the oppresive limits imposed by thermal resistance, optimize directional out-coupling efficiency, enable continuous-wave room temperature lasing, and provide a future path for integrated, electrically-pumped nanolasers.  Her work on metal-bonded photonic crystal lasers and cavities defined in optically thick slabs will prove invaluable in the years to come and am important milestone in our drive for smaller, faster optoelectronics.  We will sorely miss her intelligence, enthusiasm, mentorship, wit and humor in the lab, and although we weigh her departure with a heavy heart, we anticipate great things in her future.    Best wishes to JQ in all of her endeavors, and we can all look forward to catching up at conference or perhaps in the high Sierras!
