Research in The Fan Lab focuses on the development of novel bio/chemical sensor platforms for analytes in either liquid or gas phase using optofluidic technology and multi-dimensional micro-gas chromatography technology. The groups most recent publication in Lab on a Chip ‘Optofluidic lasers with a single molecular layer of gain’ was added to our Lab on a Chip 2014 HOT Articles collection as it received particularly high scores during peer review.
Last year Xudong received a Departmental Award for Outstanding Accomplishment and become a fellow of Optical Society of America. Congratulations Xudong!
