Welcome to the NEW web page of our research group! Our group is led by Yong-Hee Lee, a distinguished professor of physics at KAIST.
Our research is focused on the interaction of photons with various
optical nanostructures. For the summary of the research topics currently
explored by our lab please visit our Researches page. You may also click one of the representative thumbnail images above to view the detail research summary. Our Publications
page provides the research papers published by our group, and you may
download the papers for personal use only from this page.
Our laboratory is located in Basic Science Building at KAIST. Please see the Contact Us page for more detail.

Congrats Seung Ju!
On July 15th 2016, Nano Photonics Lab welcomed a new postdoctoral researcher, Dr. Sangyoon Han
, who joins our research group.
Dr. Han recently graduated from Prof. Ming C. Wu's group
in the University of California, Berkeley.
We look forward to working together with him.
Welcome to our lab, Dr. Sangyoon Han.
On June 1st
2016 Nano Photonics Lab members together with Prof. Yong-Hee Lee went to a Korean BBQ restaurant
, a small city next to Daejeon. In this event, we celebrated Prof. Yong-Hee Lee's 61st
birthday, together with Hoon Jang's recent defense completion. We enjoyed the famous Jeju Black Pork (제주흑돼지)
BBQ, Korean traditional wine (막걸리)
, and tiramisu cake. It was a really joyous evening.
On May 28th
2016 Nano Photonics Lab organized homecoming day. In this event, all of the lab alumni, along with their families, were invited to spend a day together with Prof. Yong-Hee Lee and the current members of Nano Photonics Lab. In this joyful day, we reconnected with each other through various events which were prepared by the current lab members, such as volleyball, softball, bingo, Korean BBQ dinner, and finally drinking together at a local pub. Here are some pictures taken during the event.
Hoon has successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled Sub-µW Threshold Nano-Island Lasers on May 27th, 2015.
Congratulations Dr. Jang.
