The Nanoscale Optoelectronics Group, headed by Professor John Lupton, is a condensed
matter research group in the Physics Department at the University of Utah.
The mission of our group is to develop and implement new spectroscopic techniques to gain a fundamental
understanding of the elementary properties of optoelectronic materials. The goal of our activities is
to identify strategies to improve the performance of devices such as light-emitting diodes and solar cells,
as well as developing novel optical sensing techniques.
We have recently finished constructing our first optics lab comprising a variety of new, state-of-the-art
spectroscopic equipment which is centered around a broadly tunable Ti:Sapphire laser. In
addition to the optics lab, we also have a wet chemistry lab that is used for simple chemical reactions and
